Non-breeding spotted sandpiper?

Recommended Posts

Quality isn't great since it's really zoomed in.  North shore of Lake Ontario.  I suppose this could be a juvenile too.

Yes, that looks great for non-breeding Spotted Sandpiper. Note how the white of the breast appears to curl up around the wing. That's a pretty unique mark for either Spotted or the closely related Common Sandpiper of Eurasia.
