It is possible a few of these might be Semipalmated Sandpipers, but (like the birds at East Gator Creek I saw today) these all appeared to be slightly font heavy with longish droopy bills. I may have glossed over some Semiplamated ones and left them unidentified as I was trying to discern the subtle field marks to nail down Western. But there were definitely Western Sandpipers in the mix with these large flocks.
