What are these shorebirds?

Can someone please help me with ID-ing these sandpipers. The photo was taken at Eagle Bluffs Wetlands area in Central Missouri on April 7th 2012.

Thank you. It makes sense, i see the beak coloration now and that sems diagnostic combined with the location and migration route.

Agree, Pectoral Sandpipers. Wish I saw them more often here in Nevada where they're pretty uncommon.

I have been seeing quite a few of these Pectoral Sandpipers up here around the oxbow lakes just south of Saint Joseph.
