Thankyou! So basically it tells them from afar what year and area they were tagged in.

Wonder why two metal bands cannot be put onto one leg? Too heavy?

This is another one for you smarty pants to identify for me if you can. This one reminds me of the willet except for the yellow legs. I don't think it's going to be as hard as the other one because I'm pretty sure I saw it in one of the links while I was trying to figure out what the other one was. Kildale> niiiiiiiiiiiice set of stilts on that bird!!! Loved the motion in the photos.

The Tattler had the yellow legs but it didn't have the dark rear end like this one has. I saw some tattlers where I took the photo of the fledgling heron and they didn't have that dark rear. Do mature tattlers come in a color assortment?

Sandpipers and shorebirds definitely come in assorted colors. I could be wrong but as far as I know there are only two that are more or less uniformly grey on their upper bodies - the other is Grey-tailed Tattler, but it's only recorded as an "accidental" in Hawaii. Maybe you were lucky enought to find one there?!

Here's a list of Sandpiper species in a Hawaiian park. The bird list of Hawaii in wikipedia list a few more, but the only other comparable sandpiper with yellow legs is the Lesser Yellowlegs, and it has a spotted upper body and no eye stripe or supercilium

No waaaaaaaaay could I have been lucky enough to get a photo of a rare bird... you think? That photo was taken on Kauai, what about this being T. flavipes or melanoleuca, Birds of Kauai - Main
