    As long as you’re on the topic of the Eastern Willet, can you also post a picture of its very close cousin, the Eastern Wontit? They’re so similar that you can hear people repeatedly saying Willet or Wontit…?

    Ian – Grrlscientist may not have a photo of an Eastern Wontit, but I have just put one up.
