Sanderling vs. Semipalm/Western

Recommended Posts

May 2023 Baldwin co. AL; mid-Mobile Bay

Incidental in photo, so don't have a good idea of size.  Favor Sanderling, but can't decide if that is a hind toe or not.  Doesn't look streaky enough for peep sp.  Apppreciate walk-throughs.

Yes, this is a Sanderling.

It has a hind toe to my eye. Semipalm for me, the bill doesn’t look long or droopy enough.
