    Comments: The birds were loosely associated with three Killdeer and afforded excellent scope looks from a distance of about 50 metres. They were feeding actively. We watched the birds on the shore of the channel emanating from the storm water outfall in the NW corner of Basin 1. They were approx. 2/3 the size of the Killdeer and had black legs. The bill was all black, straight and about the same length as the head. The back was scaly, uniformly grey-brown with white edges to the scapulars. They had a white supercilium and white lores. The breast was tan-coloured and streaky, ending in a fairly sharp demarcation with the all-white belly. I understand the birds were re-found on December 4, and pictures taken.
