Sandpipers on Washington Coast

Recommended Posts

(very much a beginner here). both birds in center look like they could be different, to me.

the background bird: bill seems longer, lighter coloured, possibly a slightly different shape. body colouring seems more uniform light brown. neck looks longer. 

foreground bird: bill seems darker, more triangular. neck seems almost nonexistent. dark tail appears longer. black ring around neck.

there are a few more, subtle, differences, but i find the phrasing to escape me. it's possible what i see is variation among age / binary / individual, and/or due to image / device i am viewing.

hopefully, the experts have answered / will answer all your questions. may you be able to capture an even better picture next time. take care.
