Willet (Western)

Been looking for a Bergen County Willet for a loooong time. With this recent weather and time of year I've been down here almost every morning searching. 1 was found last week but from the shorebird pool. This bird was feeding way out alone in close proximity to a mallard and size was what drew me in. Larger grey shorebird with no barring on chest. Heavier bill then yellowlegs that were also present. Heard call once but never saw it fly. Lost it as it went down into channel to feed.
