Comments:
twitching SNPL; the entrance gate attendant was aware of the bird and pointed me to the middle of Half Mile Beach; most of my time was spent photographing the SNPL, but I also quickly scanned offshore and listened along the road and in both parking lots on my way out; many vocal NOPAs; clear, 73-74˚F, W --> NW wind 8 mph

***MEGA (1st state record) | continuing bird on Half Mile Beach (Todd's Point) found/photographed earlier today by Zac Fait; many thanks to Doug Hitchcox for promptly relaying the report from out-of-state;

foraging in the company of a PIPL; grayish (sand-colored) legs; thin, pointed, black bill; I'm guessing this is an adult male based on the bold black head/neck markings (females often duller); I watched the bird catch, kill, and consume many winged insects with ease both on dry and wet sand
