Small shorebird in Monterey ID?

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the poor photos, but this guy scurried away & it was overcast/low light this morning. I noticed it because it looked ‘different’. It was alone near the surf at low tide. I’m thinking maybe a Phalarope, but I’m such a novice it could be a returning Sanderling in plumage I’m not used to seeing, or even a Sandpiper I haven’t learned yet…argh.

Thanks for any help.

See my post a few minutes ago.  Same bird?  Red Necked Pharlarope is what they think mine was.

I saw your post - your photo is much better than mine 🙂 I think you’re an hour + north, I saw this guy around 9 a.m. at the Spanish bay end of Asilomar beach.
