Help with Shorebird ID

@Seanbirds @Trevor L.  Thanks again for your replies. 

The bill was interesting.  We couldn’t tell from the photo whether the beak was shortish or curved. It looked like there was possibly a break point (near the left edge) and seeing something in the background that matched the bill trajectory or if that was the actual bill continuing on and was just reflecting the light differently.

That's not a long curved bill, and it isn't a Whimbrel.

Brightened it a lot.  Looks like a short straight bill and an object on the ground.  I'm with Charlie.

Alright, then what is it?

And just to remind everyone what Whimbrels look like.
