Plover or Sandpiper or ? at the Outer Banks, NC

Recommended Posts

Outer Banks, NC (somewhere between Kitty Hawk and Hatteras - sorry, it was 6 years ago) late Jul/earl Aug 2013.  I'm having a hard time trying to identify this bird.  Near this beach is a signage that indicated that the area is a 'Bird Use Area' and is off limits to all and one of the listed bird is the Piping Plover … heck, I'll insert the signage.  So we went to a different beach ...

Sanderling. One of the few shorebirds of their size with a longer, straight black bill. Overall, sanderling are very pale, and they have a very noticeable white stripe in the base of the primary and secondaries (when they fly).
