The bill is long enough that I think it's a dunlin.

Comparing it to the bona fide Dunlin to the right, the bird is definitely runty and short-billed, but the size difference doesn't look big enough to me for the smaller bird to be a Western. The overall body shape (short neck, plump) and plumage are also suspiciously similar to the real Dunlin.
