On July 27, Ray Duffy reported (and photographed) a leg-flagged Semipalmated Sandpiper at Mill Creek Marsh and reported it to USGS.
Last week he heard back from USGS, who said that KE2 was banded in 4/5/2012 in Suriname.
We have confirmed that the bird was banded by David Mizrahi of New Jersey Audubon.
