> There's a peep behind the Least Sandpiper in your photo on eBird (ML54959341) that I'm pretty sure is a Semipalmated Sandpiper. It has a short bill, black legs, dark cap and cheeks, gray across its chest (shown better in ML54959611), and more brown on the back than Western Sandpiper, all of which point to Semipalmated Sandpiper.
