Basic-plumaged phalarope with a dark eye line (which turned into a large ear patch behind the eye) swimming in the ocean 20 yards south of the breakwater. It then flew in to within 10 yards affording great binocular views in excellent lighting. This bird had a completely smooth pale gray back without any striping and a relatively thick bill, unlike the needle-like bill and striped back of a Red-necked Phalarope.
