Wow Lee... this is an excellent set.... Can't believe you left your amazing beach :-). Really nice set, great composition, nice colours.... perfectly done my friend.
nice variety and well presented, you did well on ID's
the unknown sandpipers, look like dowitchers, there is long-billed and short-billed to choose from,
however, "Distinguishing wintering or juvenile Short-billed Dowitchers from the Long-billed species is very difficult and, even given examination their subtlety different body shapes, cannot always be isolated to a particular species. They differ most substantially in vocalizations."
(from a cited wikipedia paragraph)
