Today's Photo - Juvenile Red Knot

Today's photo, is of a juvenile Red Knot (calidris canutus), which can be aged by the neat upperparts and wing-coverts with pale fringes and dark submarginal lines. Note, that on young Red Knots, the breast and belly tend to be pale peach instead of the brick red color of a breeding adult.
