Observation details

After two days with no reports, relocated at 9:30 am (high tide at 9:00 am) feeding in the beach wrack between the parking area and the concrete rip rap wall. Feeding on what appeared to be small flies and Beach Hoppers that were present in abundant numbers. Larger than nearby Least Sandpipers. It has an obvious reddish brown throat and neck giving the appearance of a bib that was bordered by dark brown spots. White chin. Clean white underparts. Brown line through the eye. Black feet and bill. Some scapulars and back feathers with reddish brown. It continued feeding for over 1 1/2 hours before it flew down the beach toward the "cross" pole. First reported by Viktor Nilsson-Ortman on 7/16/2014
