Willits are one of the shorebirds that poke around at the edge of the shore or at the edges of small ponds and inlets along the ocean. They look pretty drab until they take flight.
The distinguished white and black stripes that show on their wings set them apart from the Dowitchers and Yellowlegs.
This one came to shore where I was waiting for Dolphins and headed for a pool left on the beach by the falling tide.
