Happy for Shorebirds

I went out yesterday evening to the water across the road in a neighbor’s pasture, to see if I could track down and identify any shorebirds, which are starting to migrate. After a while I found three species, though my finds were not what most would consider very worthwhile. Even though I have seen the Lesser Yellowlegs and the Marbled Godwit before, I was very happy with my sighting and the photo opportunities.

Here is my favorite picture, since it captures all three species of birds I saw that day,

I believe that this bird in the two photos below is a Short-billed Dowitcher prairie subspecies. If anyone could please help me with the identification of this dowitcher, I would greatly appreciate it,

A Marbled Godwit,

Lesser Yellowlegs,
