- Comments: "Continuing bird. Did a lap from the stairs to the northeast end of the beach without seeing it. Then, on the way back a flock of Sanderlings arrived about 250 yards NE of the stairs at parking lot 6 and I got on the bird. Sandpiper with long, downward curved bill. Prominent white eyebrow. Light undersides. Dingy upper breast. More scaled appearance than a Dunlin at this time."
