Looks way off for a Willet to me. The bird lacks the bulky neck and head of a Willet, the wings looks too long, the back looks too dark, and is speckled white (like Solitary). The face pattern is odd for Solitary, though. It's hard to judge the bill size and shape given the angle of the shots.

Clearly looks like a Tringa to me. Why isn't it a - fairly long-billed - Lesser Yellowlegs?
