IDentificAtion. We saw individuals foraging on mudflats and shoreline created during low water periods in Baía do Formoso, which forms part of the protection area buffer zone, and also in EET. This species differs from others of its genus by the slender, straight bill which is as long as the head, and the long yellow legs ( Erize et al. 2006).
