White-Rumped Sandpipers? pt 1

Recommended Posts

All seen on the central coast of CA. It was Suggested to me that these could be White-Rumped Sandpiper...but after studying them in comparison with other sandpipers, I am having trouble separating White-Rumps in migration from non-breeding Least Sandpiper.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

The words "coast of CA" pretty much rule out White-rumped.  All the birds that show any reasonable view of the wingtips also rule out White-rumped, as the wings are nowhere near long enough. Given that they all look the same size....
