Per Allen (Maine Mosses) B. velutinum can have prorulose upper leaf cells which was documented in this specimen (las pic). Everything seems to check out though species is autoicous and should have sporophytes and I have no experience with this taxa.

White-rumped Sandpiper × Dunlin Calidris fuscicollis × calidris alpina

Observer

cmcheatle

Date

May 19, 2016

Description

As with any presumed hybrid to not undergo DNA testing, ID is presumed.

Documentation and pics reviewed by Ebird, Bird Studies Canada and several published shorebird field guide authors who unanimously agreed this was most likely ID.

Field marks and comments noted :
- bird was clearly equivalent in size to Dunlin
- apparent eyebrow, especially in front of eye is most comparable to breeding White-rumped
- bird appears to be in breeding plumage, and lacks the black breast patch of a Dunlin in this condition. Other photos of this apparent combination show the same missing black patch
- strong streaking of upper breast
- bill is clearly more robust and droopy than would be seen on a White-rumped, although perhaps not as large (difficult to judge) as a Dunlin
- scapular colour appears inconsistent with Dunlin (note I am partially colour blind, so this may be an observation solely on my part due to this condition)
- generally white rump, dark legs etc
- hind toe rules out Western Sandpiper

This bird isn't in winter plumage, as Dunlin are not extensively marked below in winter plumage. The underparts do superficially resemble juvenile plumage, but juveniles molt those feathers quite quickly and the fact that these are fresh and unworn indicates that they are new feathers. Breeding plumaged feathers. The streaking is also much more extensive than even a juvenile Dunlin should show. The scapulars are also new and fresh, but lack the reddish tones of a breeding plumage Dunlin. Instead they have broad buffy edges and dark centers. Again they are superficially to fresh juvenile scapualrs but they edging is much broader and buffier. And they are fresh, whereas juvenile scaps would be incredibly worn by now, and not normally retained this long.

So we have a bird with a superficially resemblance to some aspects of juvenile Dunlin plumage, but with some important differences. The bill is also a touch short, the wings quite long and the body less dumpy than a typical Dunlin. So structurally this bird is off for a typical Dunlin, and it's plumage matches no known plumage of Dunlin.

I posted photos of the colony as well as comparison of R. x pulvinata branches with R. typhina branches of approximately the same age.

Dry sandy slope above Thames River. Specimens collected. Voss & Reznicek consider R. x pulvinata more common than R. glabra in Michigan - possibly true in Ontario too?
