Wow. Now THERE is something you don't see every day. Or perhaps you do? This is simply amazing.
Awesome Ralph. Nice catch!
Great Ralph! Ok ... what is it?
Hmmmm ... Purple Sandpiper?
It's a Purple Sandpiper, Jim.
Thanks Ralph. I'd found it in Sibley's just as you were replying.
If you look closely you can see the purple in the wing for which they are named.
