Are you sure on Dunlin? I've only seen them almost plain gray-brown this time of year? (and no trace of black on belly).

I believe @IKLlandis correct. I can't see it as anything else with that bill, and its current plumage is definitely possible, probably still molting into breeding plumage. I don't have that much experience with shorbs though, so wait for more replies.

Yes, I am 95% sure. There’s no way it’s a peep(Semipalmated and least sandpipers), the black legs rule out pectoral and Stilt sandpipers, and there’s really nothing else it can be. The bill is also correct for Dunlin.
