Stilt Sandpiper?

Recommended Posts

The leggy shorebirds can be tough to identify, for me anyway.  I took this recently in South Carolina's Bear Island WMA in the ACE Basin.  I suspect it's a Stilt Sandpiper but may be wrong.  Thank you, in advance, for the help.

That's actually a Lesser Yellowlegs. Stilt Sandpipers have droopy bills.

Great call, thank you you two!  My photos don't really pick up the yellow legs that well, but upon closer inspection I do see some that coloring.  I appreciate the quick and accurate help!
