Sandpiper, Least
-Calidris minutilla (Vieillot)

The tiniest of our native sandpipers. Bill straight, rather slender. In the hand, small size separates this from all our native sandpipers except Semipalmated and Western. Its completely unwebbed (instead of partly webbed) toes distinguish it from them.
