Long distance pictures, but can anyone tell me the species? I found them in the northern part of Oregon.

I’m thinking Aleutian Rock Sandpipers.

Much too white below for Rock Sand. Going by the short bills, maybe Least Sand?


Are they over the coast, or freshwater inland?

Thanks to all of you for your help. They were on the coast.
