NORDMANN'S GREENSHANK Tringa guttifer

PREVIOUS

Also known as Spotted Greenshank, this bird, classified as vulnerable, nests almost entirely on Sakhalin Island, and migrates to South-East Asia, where most birders catch up with them. In non-breeding plumage similar to Greenshank, but the jizz is quite distinctive once learnt. The most obvious feature, particularly at range, is the "bathtub" shape of the undertail, a feature rarely mentioned in field guides.
