Shorebird in Mississauga Ontario Canada

Recommended Posts

This was taken today around 5pm looking into the sun.  The bird in the foreground I believe is a Semipalmated Sandpiper. Is the one in the background a Baird's Sandpiper?

Thanks for your help.

Hasan is a valuable resource here but sometimes a person of few words. I would not doubt his ID.

I suspect the OP was partly working on the apparently dark legs which are due to the back-lighting.

I'm mediocre with shorebirds but I think the face pattern for the bird in the foreground indicates Least, no idea with the bird at the back other than "birds of a feather ...............".

PS. I had to step in for a fellow Ontarian.
