OK, now I'm getting into some of my Galveston files from last May. I am so bad with these little brown shorebirds. Help! What is this little guy? (not the willets.... the little one)

Looking through my bird books I think it looks more like some of the sandpipers and not a plover..... I'm leaning toward Semipalmated Sandpiper. However it shows them to only be in the area during migration. This was in early May.... perhaps it was a migrant?

I'm thinking Least Sandpiper, but the pics aren't clear enough to be 100% sre.
