Nassau, Bahamas ... some sort of Sandpiper?

Hi everyone. This bird (along with numerous others) was sighted daily Jan. 12-19 on the beach, by the main swimming pool, by the restaurants looking for handouts, etc.

Just wondering if anyone can positively I.D. this bird? Thank You.

Arrgh! How do I delete this thread? The photo file size is too large! A bit difficult to I.D. an invisible bird!

Sorry everyone. Please ignore this AND the other identical thread. (sigh) Lack of sleep, PMS and too much Chocolate has affected my brain!

You may use a program to crop the image or show fewer pixels, and then upload the result to an answer to this thread

Hi again! Your bird is a Ruddy Turnstone - they can be quite tame in some places, and pretty omnivorous as there are recorded cases of them feeding on corpses washed up on the tideline over here!!
