I went to Indians Rocks, Gulf of Mexico, central Florida Feb. 15 on a very windy day when it was a bit chilly. I was hoping to see a couple of pelagic birds. Is this one?
I also saw this bird on the beach today, and I think I know what it is, but am not positive. It was running back and forth in a zig zag motion in the low surf. Shorebirds in their non-breeding plumage can be flummoxing for me. -SLB
