SW Florida USA - bay waders (long shots) (1 Viewer)


United States
Seen today, in Estero Bay.

1) Willet, a ?, and a ?
2) ?

Sorry for the photo quality, but of course the birds wanted to be in middle of the bay as far from humans as possible.
Thanks for any help!

Judging size, as we know, is a dodgy business... But bird second from left in pic 1 and central bird in pic 2 would be really big for a stilt sandpiper. Even if it does look like one.
