Three sandpipers were at the marsh Sunday (10/8) shortly before sunset.  One looked like a mini-me version of the other two. All three had yellow legs, so I believe the smaller one was a least and the larger two were pectorals.  A sharp-tailed sandpiper was recently been reported on Tweeters. I wish I could chalk up another rare bird sighting for Edmonds this year, but believe the two I photographed were pectorals  and not their look alike Asian cousin.

Scroll down page 24 for photos.  As usual, comments about the ID's of the birds are welcome.http://www.pnwphotos.com/forum/showthread.php?14796-Wildlife-of-Edmonds-WA-2017/page24
