Observation details

Three together with other shorebirds. About the size of surrounding pectoral sandpipers but with shorter all black bill, scaly black and buff back with no white edging or lines. Head throat and upper breast a pale buffy, paler thanthe darker pectoral and not streaked at all on the breast, also no supercillium or cap. Eyes looked very round and large. Awesome scope views, I think at least one identifiable picture. Lit! I was hoping this might be my weekend to get them based on past reports. Lifer, previously my biggest nemesis for the US
