That won't help, as White-rumped Sandpiper does NOT have a white rump.

In The Scope: White-rumped Sandpiper (cobirds.org)

Sorry, uppertail coverts not rump.

Another structural feature that differs between White-rumped Sandpiper and Baird’s Sandpiper is that White-rumped seems plumper to me.

Both have broad shoulders, but Baird’s has a flatter back and belly, giving its body (viewed head-on) an oval shape, while White-rumped has a more rounded back and belly so is more of a circle than an oval when viewed head on.
