help with some shorebirds

Recommended Posts

I saw these birds yesterday at the Edwin Forsythe Wildlife refuge in Galloway, NJ. I know I have some dowitchers, but I'm not sure what else I see here.. maybe stilt sandpipers? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That grayish bird?  To me its bill looks tiny compared to the dowitcher's.

You're only noticing the light base of the bill. The bill darkens on/in the distal half or portion.

Is the third bird from the right another Pectoral?

Definitely not a Pectoral, as mentioned the bill is way too long - clear when I zoom in on my phone.
