At Scripps Beach in San Diego. Pecking at sand. I think it's a tern of some kind
Shoreline at the beach
Species is known as the "Grey Plover" throughout most of the world. Terns are much shorter with thicker bills and longer wings.
I thought so at first too. I couldn't make a clear decision
It is not a tern, Lili. Rather looks like a Plover.
