Shorebirds, Southeast Michigan, Part 1

Recommended Posts

I guess shorebirds are migrating back South through Michigan now, and I need help. These were taken recently at Pointe Mouilee on Lake Erie. I've got some lifers regardless, but please correct any of these IDs:

1. Stilt Sandpiper?

2. Short-billed Dowitchers, because of how much white in the tail in flight photo?

3. Short-billed Dowitcher juvenile? with peep - guessing Semipalmated Sandpiper?

4. Same peep as above, guessing Semipalmated Sandpiper?

1) Adult Stilt Sandpiper

2) The left bird looks pretty bulky, but they're probably both SB

3) An adult, Looks like SB. The peep is indeed a Semi

4) Semi again
