Sandpiper ID Help

Recommended Posts

I saw this bird at Bethel Beach Natural Area (Chesapeake Bay) near Mathews, Va on 7/24/19.

I am having trouble deciding if it is a least or semipalmated sandpiper.  I leaning towards semipalmated.

Thank you for any help!

Semipalmated seconded due to the leg color, "bull-necked" appearance, lighter coloration and bill shape.
