Hi Jerald, This looks and sounds like a Spotted Sandpiper to me. When I’m searching for Spotted Sandpiper in my recordings, I set the detector to 4 – 5 kHz. The Solitary Sandpipers that have passed through here in Nova Scotia are 6 kHz or more on the upper part of the spectrogram.

I usually can separate them because spotted is below 4 khz, while solitary is above 4 khz, but this one is kind of in between. I'm inclined to call it a low solitary, but I'm not sure. <https://ssl.gstatic.com/ui/v1/icons/mail/images/cleardot.gif> Jerald Delaware -- Jerald -- NFC-L List Info: <http://www.northeastbirding.com/NFC_WELCOME> Welcome and Basics <http://www.northeastbirding.com/NFC_RULES> Rules and Information <http://www.northeastbirding.com/NFC-L_SubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm> Subscribe, Configuration and Leave Archives: <http://email@example.com/maillist.html> The Mail Archive <http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NFC-L> Surfbirds <http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/NFCL.html> BirdingOnThe.Net Please submit your observations to eBird <http://ebird.org/content/ebird/> ! -- -- NFC-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NFC_WELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NFC_RULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NFC-L_SubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NFC-L 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/NFCL.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
