sandpiper and hawk help

Recommended Posts

Two groups of about 24 individuals seen at Kern WLR in central California today. Legs looked dark but not as dark in the pictures so now really confused. Size about 6 inches. 

Also saw this hawk - shown back and front. Is this a juvenile red-tailed borealis?

Thanks in advance.

The peeps look good for Least. I've noticed the same thing. In the field the legs are silhouetted and look dark. Then when I load my photos they look a little lighter.

The hawk looks too dark below the belly band for borealis, but wait for more input.
