Hi all

I originally had these down as Baird's (left) and Least (right). Someone contesting left is Semipalmated Sandpiper? Both expected here. Thanks Gary

I can see it! It's a Baird's. Notice the elongated structure and wingtip projection ruling out Semipalmated Sandpiper, and the lack of fine streaking on the breast ruling out White-rumped.

I think that the bill base is too thick for Baird's. Additionally, the malar area is white; it should be brown on Baird's. Semi seems a fine ID to me, probably a female, as it looks so big.
