NW Washington, today. Thanks.

Any chance these are Dunlin?

This Mew Gull isn't actually a "shore bird", but it was at the shore so fit this post.

1. Haha, bill should be a little longer on a Dunlin. These little peeps are Least Sandpipers due to the yellow legs
2. Agree with Mew, with the tiny bill and all. Cool bird & picture, gulls are underrated!
