First one I've seen. This was shot at Englewood Metropark, Ohio Saturday morning. One person called it a Short-billed, but I'm not sure which it is after looking it up in two shorebird books. Maybe someone who has some experience with these guys can chime in? Shots aren't the greatest as it rained all morning.

That's it flying on the right.

The one on the right (darker plumage) is a Dowitcher, my guess is a long billed dowitcher due to the bill length.

I think JTF is right. Extremely difficult in non breeding plumage.
