On December 8, 2014, Stan Deutsch photographed an odd shorebird in Gloucester and uploaded the photo to his Flickr site. The photograph remained unidentified for 2.5 years until Tim Spahr and Brian Harris discovered the image, which most certainly showed Common Greenshank! Stan Deutsch confirms that he indeed took the photograph in Gloucester in December 2014. This a 1st state record for Massachusetts, one of very few in eastern North America!
