continuing Pacific golden-plover Tijuana Estuary 8-9-18

Presumably the same individual Pacific golden-plover observed last week off Seacoast Dr was observed yesterday (8/9) at Border Field State Park.  It was on the fringes of a large roosting flock of black-bellies and snowies on the beach about 200 yds north of the horse trail at least from 8:30 to 9:40 am, seen by me & Lea Squires.  It showed relatively bright yellowish wash to face, bright spangling on the back & upper wings, & a few remnant black spots/speckling on the breast & belly, smaller size & finer bill than adjacent BBPLs.
