Nonbreeding bird seen feeding along shoreline of Laguna Madre with Dunlin, Willet, and Long-billed Curlew. Chunky and grayish overall. Similar in overall pattern to Willet (gray; slightly lighter below). Chunky body - smaller than Willet and larger than Dunlin. Bill shorter than Willet and straight. Legs shorter than Willet. Couldn't make out leg color, also didn't really care. Identified by structure mostly. Contact Raymond VanBuskirk: newmexicobirder@gmail.com for more details.
