    Help ID these birds for me. Caught them as I wa slogging through one of my haunts today. They seem to fit the description of Lesser Yellowlegs but yet the color, pattern and white eye circlet have it leaning towards a Solitary Sandpiper. My good birding giude went AWOL it seems.
    Anyway here are some not to bad shots.

    I'm out in the field. The streaks you see are really blades of canary grass that is in the forefront of the scene and out of focus. You can't always get a completley clear path to your subject.;)
