Sainte-Martine, Quebec

I was busy taking pictures and it took me an embarrassingly long time to realize that there were two types of little shore birds in front of me. The Least Sandpipers with their darker feathers and yellowish legs, and these, paler feathers and darker legs. An image taken a few seconds earlier (though not critically sharp), shows a slight webbing between the toes.
