Can anyone identify this bird?
It was seen at Don Edwards NW Refuge (near Alviso) today It is white with a black cap, white eye patch, black back, and yellow legs.
The two photos below are of the same bird.
Larger than a robin, smaller than a crow. Wading In the shallow ocean water. The belly looks like it’s a different color than the top. I haven’t seen these before. They must be less common in the city. August 27th. Around 1PM. Portland, Maine.
