It looks like one bird, but just shrinking as you scroll down XD

Reminds me of the Dutch names for the jaegers - the middle, the small and the smallest...

And then there are the stints: Calidris subminuta, C. minuta, and C minutilla.
Long toed stint, little stint and least sandpiper.

I guess its hard it's find a name that lies between small and super-small. Technically it's the less-than-small sandpiper, I guess. No wonder it got called long-toed...

I wonder what the Latin is for 'long-toed'. I will have to look it up!

They all fall into my category of Small Brown Birds that Scurry about on the Beach.

It's a category that gets larger the worse my eyesight gets.
