I apologize for the photo quality, it was quite distant and I understand an ID is maybe not possible, but the bird in question is second from the left (zoom it in).  The bird third from left appears to be a Semipalmated Sandpiper and most other birds are likely Least Sandpipers, but the bird second from the left appears to have an elongated shape, am I imagining this?  I was contemplating whether the bird in question could be a White-rumped Sandpiper, which while rare, is timed properly for here in Western PA.  Thanks!

Western Sandpiper maybe?

But doesnt the bill look too short for western?  I agree it's got a front heavy look but also I was wondering if it indeed did have long wings past the tail which would not apply to Western.
