That Whimbrel photo seems to show a Eurasian Whimbrel. Looks like a white line going up the back in the one photo and barred whitish tail. Super cool.

I got some bad photos of it as it flew away, but you can still see the curved bill and whitish rump of this largish shorebird. Other good finds included a small flock of White-winged Scoters in the choppy waters and hundreds of Northern Gannets, Purple Sandpipers and up to 8 Piping Plovers. Some breeding plumage Common Loons. I thought I saw a seal as I approached the jetty but it dove down and never popped up again.
