  1. I guess what I meant to ask was.. the color seems much lighter than I'm used to seeing, especially on the beak. I'm used to seeing more of a reddish color, not that light orange like with this bird... Does this coloration indicate anything, or is it just a variation of pigmentation?

  2. I saw these birds today at DeKorte Park, in the Meadowlands, NJ. I think the first two are semipalmated sandpipers.. I'm not sure about the third..the mud isn't letting me see the true leg color. The rustier color makes me think least...Then I think the last is a lesser yellowlegs.. but I'm not sure of any of these ID's so any help would be greatly appreciated.
