I have too many sandpipers that I am not quite sure about. If they cannot be ID'ed, that's ok. These were all taken in central Iowa.

1. Least Sandpiper??
2&3 Greater Yellowlegs??
4. ???
5. Yellowlegs??

Here's more...

7. Solitary Sandpiper or Greater Yellowlegs???
8. Yellowlegs?

OOPS... #8 will be in the next one. I clicked the wrong button.

Here is number 8.

I was so glad to find a Spotted Sandpiper. That was easy to identify after all these others. :)

Thank you for your help.

Thank you for the reply. Disappointing, but that's ok. There have been a lot of the Yellowlegs lately, so hoping for others. :)
