Anyone know the ID on these? Maybe Red Knots?

what kind of a lens are you using? Really great photos and I'm sure ALL birds would want to be in Florida right now. I have PUPPY pictures up..... :-)

Red Knot or maybe Short Billed Dowitcher. The beak looks a little long for a Red Knot.

Boxer, I loves me some puppy pics!

It's that Carl Zeiss lens on my Sony. AWESOME!

Chickory, yes they are. :)

Shamy, I'm thinking you're right with the Short Billed Dowitcher.

I eagerly await ID from the experts. Love the shore birds...can't tell them apart.

ThreeC, top pic with the larger bird is a Black-bellied Plover in winter plumage.
The little white birds are Sanderlings.
Gonna head out tomorrow and try to get some more birds for you. :)
