LOST BIRD ?

by MARK
(ROCHESTER MN)


Seems to be lost. This bird came in with the storm on 5/2/13. He has a long orange beak, orange legs,his beak is tipped with black also, a green tinge on his sides and rust belly. He fits parts of many types of birds, but does not match perfectly with just one. The best we can see would maybe be the long or short billed Dowitcher. Can anyone positively identify him? He's still here in NW Rochester tonight, hiding under a pine.


i just copied the tv's article
