Assorted Peeps

Over the past few months, I have been checking a local fluddle that seems to never dry up. I've saved a few photos to post about when all is said and done, and the fluddle has dried up. That day is today. It enticed many types of peeps, but getting good photos was a whole other story. It was a tough shot at any time of day, but I managed a few that were blog-worthy. I also want to note that identifying these waders was very tough, so if you want to argue an ID, please do!

Long-billed Dowitcher

An assortment of peeps including Greater Yellowlegs, Killdeer, and last but not least, mystery peeps. The smallest peeps in this scene I cannot ID. Can you?

OK, Hannibal - fluddle is a new word for me! Since you used it twice I assume it is not a typo. Is it a puddle where bird flutter ;-) Very cool shots you were able to get! I like you do not ID these types of birds well so no argument here.
That first one is just so darn cute!

A beautiful series. A spot like that is a haven for wildlife.

I have no idea about the identity of that bird either.
