White top of head with some mottled darker on top, like skull cap, apparently in transition. No clear connection I could see between mottled colored top and back. White separated these. The white extended down to shoulder. Black belly and narrower breast stripe extended to face. The black on belly ended at legs or just slightly beyond. The back did look slightly brownish-black and light. Size was between yellowlegs and pectorals. Did not call or fly. Others likely to post good pictures--they had longer lenses. I am posting highly cropped picture that is blurry."
