I was contemplating for a while if it was a SPSP but I think it was.

Excellent pose, and wing detail, in this image, Karl. Great setting as well.

that's a lot of orangey/rufous coloring and yellow looking legs there. I might re-think the semipalmated sandpiper ID, but I don't know what you have there exactly. Do you have any side shots?

Very nice wing stretch, but you may have a Least Sandpiper there.

Thank you all. The ID is not a clear cut. I usually go by the beak; straight stubby, Semipalmated, thinner slightly downcurved, Least. The leg of this small birds is almost always covered with mud which makes it difficult to tell the color. However, you more than likely are right as the viewing angle of the beak is not the best for ID the bird. I'll post a side view one next. There were four Least and one Semipalmated in the group I was shooting.
