A few more details now that I'm back home.
Full list and record shots here: https://ebird.org/checklist/S118791928

Exact location is the end of the spit at Fort Flagler, Marrowstone Island,
Jefferson County, by the beach campground -- nw corner of park. The AMGP is
with the large BBPL flock. Best to look at higher tides and early morning
or late evening to avoid beachgoers, otherwise the flock sometimes
relocates on Indian Island, which is too far to see well and inaccessible.

Based on eBird, this AMGP is a 2nd county record. First photographed a few
days ago by some Seattle birders (not sure who) and refound and identified
to species last night by Alex Patia.

good birding,
