I just spoke to Ginger.



Here's basically what she told me:



She saw the bird today in first standing on a log that was floating in
Browns Slough that leads out to the open water from the Hayton Farms
Reserve. Then she said it flew from there over the parking lot out into the
open field. She lost it in the field. There were Dunlin and BB Plover out
there in the field. This would be the field that is to the East of the
gravel road that leads to the parking area at Hayden Reserve.



She described the bird as all gray, with dark reddish orange legs much
different color than a Yellowlegs. Long bill with a downward curve at the
end. Lower mandible was reddish and upper mandible was dark. The supercilium
was very white and very contrasted to the rest of the grey plumage.



Parking area is at this GPS point Hayton Farms Reserve
