Solitary Sandpiper at Santee Lake #6, Monday morning

About 0630 on Monday August 26, 2019, a Solitary Sandpiper was observed at Santee Lake #6.  Identified by bouncy/erratic flight style, black central tail feathers and barred outer tail feathers, darker and grayer than Spotted Sandpiper, somewhat longer/slimmer bill than Spotted, and high-pitched emphatic flight calls.  Bird flew south from Lake #6 and I did not re-locate it.
