Comments & Identifications

Thumb

The stance and yellowish legs in photo 2 combined with the dark tail and wing stripes in photo 1 suggest to me a Spotted Sandpiper. They like rocky edges of ponds and the like. Was it bobbing its head? Spotted Sandpipers do that often.

It's more of a butt bob than a head bob.
