But I think that's why I have here.  I think the eye stripe is too well defined for a Semi, and the legs seem to have a greenish hue (or at least not definitively black).

Lexington County, central SC, August 11th.  The ongoing saga of what's feeding on the exposed lake bed of a farm pond recently lowered by 4 feet.  I have other photos of similar birds on other days.

@Tony Leukering, thanks.

I'm more confident with these guys at closer ranges.  However, the lowered pond is on private property, and is only observable from the adjoining public road.  The least sloping, dampest portion of the exposed bed is several hundred feet from the road, and that's where all the sand-probers are hanging out.  All the interesting details are beyond the range of my binos, and barely within reach of my camera.  It helps that there are plenty of Killdeer and some Spotted Sandys for size comparison.
