The compact birds: Pectoral Sandpipers

  • Note medium size, slightly decurved bill, heavily marked breast, yellow-green legs, and distinct white belly.

The tall, graceful birds: Lesser Yellowlegs 

  • Note the yellow legs, thin bill which is only slightly longer than the head, and white spotted brown back.

Thanks so much for the quick response. Those were my thoughts, too, but I don’t trust myself with sandpipers. THESE ARE BOTH LIFERS!!!!

And I'll point out that Pectoral and yellowlegs are all sandpipers.

I’m aware of that. I was just basing it off of the endings of their common names.
