Super Rarity here. This small sandpiper shows rufous tertials, a tiny, pointed bill and an overall pale appearance, compared to the nearby Western and Least Sandpipers that it was feeding with.

Description from Wikipedia

The calidrids or typical waders are a group of Arctic-breeding, strongly migratory wading birds. These birds form huge mixed flocks on coasts and estuaries in winter. They are the typical "sandpipers", small to medium-sized, long-winged and relatively short-billed.
