Pectoral Sandpiper or Least in poor lighting?


Recommended Posts

There is a Semipalmated Plover on the right and the bird in the center left is leaving me wondering.  It appears to have a dark breast with a clear border making me think Pectoral, however that would be an odd record this late in spring in Western pa so I'm then thinking just a Least Sandpiper in shadow?  Thanks.

I can't 100% confirm as I'm not great with peeps, especially when not a lot of detail can bee seen. But that's what I'd lean towards and I can confirm it's not a pectoral. Pectorals are only 1.5 inches bigger than a semipalmated plover but would look significantly bigger than this bird does.
