Observation details

I originally submitted this as a Ruff, then changed it to a Buff-breasted Sandpiper, then changed it to Pectoral Sandpiper, but I now officially believe it to be a Buff-breasted Sandpiper. My photos are not very good, but in the magnified image, you can see that the breast of the bird is not streaked. Also, as Sharif Uddin mentioned, there appears to be no eyeline, and the face seems unmarked. I first saw the bird with a few turnstones in some mangrove roots (the area is being restored) a few feet offshore from the wetland area. It was heavily obscured by some of the roots, but still allowed me to see it's yellowlegs. After some time, the flock flew from the roots, and onto the wetland area (I have never sprinted so hard in my life) for a few minutes. Eventually, the whole flock flew east, towards the airport. I did not see them for the rest of the day.
