Size comparison was easy as it was in with Least Sandpipers(larger than) and Dowitchers(smaller than). Approximately 8 inches. Bill stout, longish droop tipped bill. Did not see the legs as it was feeding in water up to the belly. Was feeding with the same type of motion as the Long-billed Dowitchers.
