Have you looked at the ant-tanagers? the first bird might be sitting to high and open for one, but that is what jumps to mind.

One tiny change: I would use a colon after the word Africa rather than a comma. Otherwise I think it looks OK.

I am not a nikon shooter but I would predict you might be the first birder to do that switch. Everyone else would want to hear about your experiences if you go ahead.

I saw a number of least sandpiper there. They were all considerably smaller than the plovers. This bird is further away than the others. Can there really be such an optical illusion in size?

One peep

In the attached image I have two semipalmated plovers and between those a semipalmated sandpiper. However, the right hand bird seems a little larger, is it a pectoral sandpiper?

If you truly believe they are different yes. But are they? Would they become one uniform pool of birds if they lived on the same continent?
