Okay, this little guy is absolutely adorable and I have not been able to figure out what kind of bird this is. They’re commonly seen on beaches here in Texas, and they’re often alone or one of a handful. I haven’t seen them in a flock like seagulls. But they’ll rapidly scuttle to the edge of the water, peck around the sand, and when a wave comes, they often run back to avoid the water. Arguably the cutest waterbird I have ever seen.
