It appeared equal in size to a Ruby-throat which was also perched on the wire.

Habitat was oilfield in salt marsh prairie; shallow mud bottom pond adjacent to shell road surrounded by spartina grass. Varied groups of shorebirds in pond (15 species) at the time. This bird standing next to and between Gull-billed Tern & Short- billed Dowitcher. (Tern standing on higher ground). Bird was bathing/preening. Very brief upward flight when raising from soaking posture. Skittish, almost took to flight on 2 occasionsbefore leaving when finally disturbed by cattle crossing pond.

Back darker than nape but not as dark as scapulars. Legs yellow. White across rump clearly seen during preening. Voice not heard. Description from memory 1 hr after sighting without field guide. Similar species - First thought this was a Buff-breasted Sandpiper eliminated for bill too long and thick and complete lack of streaking, spotting or striping on breast or neck. Sharp-tailed Sandpiper out for same reasons - in addition to lack of rufous color on crown.
