Yep, you are right!
Scientific name: Calidris alba
The Sanderling is a small wader. It is a circumpolar Arctic breeder,
and is a long-distance migrant, wintering south to South America,
South Europe, Africa, and Australia. It is highly gregarious in winter,
sometimes forming large flocks on coastal mudflats or sandy beaches.
Have a good day
In photography, light is free but catching it is not!

Boy that was fast!!
Thanks for your confirmation. I used Peterson's Field Guide to Birds to make the initial ID but wanted to make sure I, in fact, had the right bird.
