A first for me. According to my Sibley's Guide these are juvenile/immature birds.

Love the angle of the first one as it is digging for crustaceans.

Great shots, John. I've photographed them here, locally, but very poorly. Well done.

Thank you Al. I got lucky I think that they were quite accommodating. Or maybe it is very hungry.

very nice John- shorebirds remain almost impossible for me to ID with any accuracy

Thanks Bob. They are very difficult. It is all about subtle differences. Sometime extremely subtle.

Nice shots, John! Peeps are always hard to photograph and identify, at least for me.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.
