Presqu'ile is a great spot to get close to migrant shorebirds. This one is an adult Pectoral Sandpiper. The heavy front markings down to the upper belly with a clearly defined cut off is diagnostic with this species. It is also larger than the Least.

Thank you Brian for the proper identification. It's not always easy to identify those peeps.
