Not confident at all but I think I see White-rumped Sandpipers in with some Stilt Sandpipers. Don't go by me, though.

There was at least one Stilt on the shore with that group.

I think that some of these birds are White-rumped. Just with these blurry photos, separating them from the Wilson's Phalaropes is a pain. 

I've learned a lot since I posted this! 🙂
I had assumed that only White-rumpeds show white on their backs when flying, but now I'm looking at Stilts and Wilson's Phalaropes. I saw both of those other species on the shore too. And dowitchers. So it's a mess. But I'm sorting it out.
