Is this a Dunlin leading the pack of Willets?

Do you think the bill is slightly downturned?

If you are trying to get it to be SBDO, I think the better case for that is no white in the "wing pit" area that LBDO would show.  

If trying to make it a Dunlin, the under-wing is too dark also.

I don't want to force it into any ID--just wanting some more experienced input.  I'm good with "shorebird" if definitive ID not possible.

Could be SBDO/LBDO on checklist, but I think it is likely a SBDO.  White patch under the wing should be visible even from that angle.  Had LBDO with an even worse angle last wee, and were able to see it.
