Hundreds of birders came to Jamestown over the last week to catch a glimpse of the wood sandpiper, a bird that has never before been seen in New England.

Below, dozens of out-of-state tourists snap photos of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. More photos at DorianAndersonPhotography.com. Story on Page 21.
