Sandpiper Shorebirds

I don't believe these lads will ever play the bagpipes (read: pipers) but they sure are sweet to look at.  Well that's my attempt at humour for today.  lol

These are new sighting for me.   I know very little about shorebirds.  If you think my identification is incorrect, please feel free to comment on what you believe they are.

What a beautiful bird, Daniel.
There is something very graceful about it.

The last shot of the bird in the water is spectacular. I don't know a lot about shorebirds, sorry. These are really terrific shots!
