IDentificAtion. One individual in eclipse plumage was seen foraging on a small mudflat on the shore of the Bracinho River. We identified this species by its brown upper, white belly and eyebrow, dark beak, and yellowish legs ( Gwynne et al. 2010). We saw discreet spots on the belly, indicating its non-breeding status.
