Beautiful images,Dave. Could be a Sanderling,but I'm no expert on shore birds. The semipalmated and sanderling are very similar.http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Sanderling/idRick

Really excellent and, yes, a Sanderling.
Dave very nice stuff all of them. I find I enjoy #3 the most for the eye contact.

thank you Tom, Vaugn, Stan and Reilly
Super sharp Dave, love the low "belly" shot angle. I'm also leaning towards it being a Sanderling, but still learning my shorebird ID's.
