- Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S87276533
- Comments: "Male scoped across the bay from the South T-Pier. Distant photos too poor to be useful. Bird had white sides and a gray back and black head and chest, though the head shape changed while in view the high point was often over the eye and swept down from there, it had a wide black nail on the tip of the otherwise blue bill, and the head was broad across the cheeks and narrower above."
