Seen only by Doug Gochfeld and myself as it flew south over Bunker Pond and over dunes. Medium-small shorebird; pale overall with bright white underparts like Sanderling, but flight much more erratic and twisting than SAND; upperparts smooth pale gray, a shade darker than SAND; bold white wing stripe slightly thinner than SAND.
