Thanks to the birders who responded to my post of yesterday about the
little shorebird I saw at Canyon Park Wetlands yesterday afternoon. The
consensus was that it was a very early Baird's Sandpiper, but a couple of
people mentioned Semipalmated Sandpiper. That put doubt in my mind, so I
went back this morning (Friday) and to my pleased surprise, the little
flock was still there.

I took a lot more pictures, and now I'm leaning toward Semipalmated
Sandpiper.

I would really appreciate any opinions, ideas, or suggestions as to the
identity of this bird. Here is a link to pictures and my reasons for
changing my mind:
