We have some citing the shorter wings and primary projection and the
streaking on the sides of the breast to conclude that the reported bird
is a Least Sandpiper. We have others citing the black legs and the gape
notch to conclude that it is a Little Stint. How to decide?

Pictures of the subject bird:
