shorebird sp.

possible/ probable Red Knots versus Short-billed Dowitchers?? 2 shorebirds as distant flybys over the bay, within 200 feet of shoreline. direct flight low over the water going from north to south--never stopped. chunky shorebirds roughly dowitcher-sized with bright russet underparts contrasting with white belly/ vent area. black bills appeared longish but not as long as dowitcher. upperparts appeared grayish. again, birds were quite distant and I can't be absolutely certain about the ID, and although the date is a little bit on the early side I don't believe migrating knots on SPI are too surprising after mid-July.
