I was thinking that, but I have had no experience with them so. . . 

The bird on the right is tilting over a lot more than a Dowitcher, that posture is diagnostic for Stilt Sandpiper because they have proportionately longer legs and shorter bill so they tilt over more. They also just have really long thin legs
