the bright orange-yellow bill, white across the face and over the eye, and
paler gray flanks. Although rare on the coast in summer, I have had a
Clark’s among the Westerns at Yachats in summer a number of times over the

- Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S71816781
- Comments: "I went to Sitka Sadie for Snowy Plover patrol training. It was
cancelled but I walked the spit alone. After 1.5 hours I had seen plover
tracks but no birds. Then 2 western snowy Plovers were walking beside me.
20-30 yards, they were unconcerned about me. Both had a partial chest band
and dark line on forehead and through the eye. Feeding is entertaining.
They dip their head start running , accelerate very fast as they snatch
something then pull up an stop. I sat down and watched these 2 for 15
minutes. As they were moving were I couldn’t see them anymore 2 more came
moving in the same direction. I watched them 10 minutes and then a group of
3 came up. None had leg bands. Some of the later birds did not have
distinct partial chest bands"
