I forgot about this one. I believe this is a Long-billed Dowitcher, but I'm not completely sure. Perhaps someone can help with the id. I should have had my Birding magazine with me. The poor thing has a lame leg, thus the easy photos. It fed voraciously, but it didn't seem to have the energy to fly further than three or four feet in a spell. This was at the Amargosa Canyon, .5 km south of the edge of the burn.
