Sandpiper, but which one?

Recommended Posts

Saw this bird today among a large flock of dowitchers at the Reifel wildlife refuge near Vancouver, BC.

Size, leg color and bill suggest pectoral, but the breast markings don't look quite right (color is off, and no clear delineation between streaked and unstreaked parts). Obvious white eye-ring and white eyebrow consistent with sharp-tailed sandpiper, which is rare here but does show up in small numbers during fall migration.

Thoughts?
