I'm hoping someone will recognize these. I have two diff. birds that I just couldn't pin down as to there ID. I have two pics of the first one. Is it a black bellied plover? Here's the first pic.

This is the other unidentified one. Some kind of sandpiper? It's the taller grayer one, not the little short brownish fellows who I believe are Ruddy Turnstones.
TIA!

Resin: I just knew you would answer! :) I can't believe I got the Plover right!
I'd probably never have arrived at Red Knot, though, without your help.
Thanks so much!
