Without knowing the relative size, my guess would be Dunlin  due to wing pattern and long droopy bill. Not enough to count but at least an educated guess.

I am leaning Spotted Sandpiper. I think the white stripe on the underwing is better for Spotted. Also the second photo looks good for juvenile Spotted.

Just curious, what keeps this from being a Western or Least Sandpiper?

Behavior would nail down Spotted quickly.When it landed, did it “twerk” its rump? Relative size would also help as there is no good reference .Sparrow size, Thrush size?

No.

Birds do NOT 'twerk' their rumps.  'Dip', 'teeter', bounce', 'see-saw', even 'toggle', but not 'twerk'.

Just ... just no.  Don't ever do that again.

Thank you.  :classic_tongue:
