Hello- I need some help identifying these birds photographed today at a Charleston cemetery pond. I suspect Common Sandpiper but the white spots don't match what I'm seeing in my guide books. Hope someone can help. Thank you.

Assuming these were seen in South Carolina, these are Solitary Sandpipers.  In North America, the Common Sandpiper (Actitis hypoleucos) occurs only in Alaska.

Thank you for your responses. Yes I’m in Charleston, SC.  Solitary Sandpiper is a lifer bird for me, so thank you even more! Have you seen the white spots that these have? 

First time using this forum in a while. I had been active on it for years but just learned of the crash. Had to reregister as I guess everyone did.
