After the Peregrine came through and cleared out the thousands of Peeps off the rocky islands at the 2nd bridge, I was scanning through the rocks looking at the remaining Curlews, when I noticed one remaining Peep. It seemed bigger than a Western, but still very pale gray overall on the back, with a prominent eyebrow and noticeable streaks on the breast, rather long bodied with wings extending beyond the tail. Overall to pale for a Baird's, and gray not brown, and the streaked breast was unique and unlike any other Peep, not the solid brown breast of a Baird's. Later the thousands of Westerns returned, and it was noticeably bigger.
