Rare Bird Sighting

I saw this bird as I traveled through the marsh on my way to work.  It looked like a short sand piper, not that remarkable.  Just another bird migrating.

But it was a Wood Sand Piper.

But, what do I know about birds,

being a backyard, part time casual and amateur birder?

Then the birders from the East Coast showed up – in groves – to see this rare find in the lower 48.  Actually, I saw a car with Oregon plates.
