Hi all
I was birding today in Eagle Creek Park IN in some mudflats and saw these to little sandpipers probing, Are they Semipalmated or Least?

I have a ridiculously small amount of experience with sandpipers but for these I'd put Least above Semi.

Thanks GreatHorn! I thought It might have been a Least Sandpiper

A bit distant, but I'd agree with Least, the bill seems too fine and downcurved for Semi.
