Today's Photos - ID challenge to beginning shorebirders...

Okay peeps, here is a rather easy one for you.  Time to break out the field guide; take a look at the images below and try to identify the species.  No hints!  Good luck and please post your suggestions instead of e-mailing them to me.

Pectoral Sandpiper and Semipalmated Sandpipers?

Pectoral Sandpipers?

@Prairiebirder - nice work, you got 2 out of three. The last one was Least Sandpiper. Darker than a Semipalmated, leg color is one of the easiest way to tell them apart from Semi if they are not caked with mud.

@Kevin - Very good. You got 1 out of three. The other two were Semipalmated and Least Sandpipers.
