Does anyone know what this bird is?

It's tiny, just a bit bigger than a chickadee, and there were two of them on the sand at the edge of the Ottawa river, near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It would use it's beak to quickly probe the sand.

I'm inclined to say it is a Least Sandpiper, which is the smallest of the shorebirds (and only slightly larger than a Chickadee). I almost said Baird's, however they have dark gray legs, and are slightly larger...and have maybe a slightly longer bill.

For reference, here are a couple shots of these birds. First is Bairds, second is Least:

Actually, you did say Baird's, before the edit.   ;)

But I'm inclined to agree that it's a least sandpiper.

I took a closer look at the legs, which looked gray at first. Given that they are yellow, definitely not Baird's. And it was "almost"...I did edit. :P

I'm pretty sure it's a Least Sandpiper, although I'm surprised to see it that far south at this time of year.  It's a bit early for the fall migration to have started.

It's been pretty cold to the north this year. I wouldn't be surprised if birds start migrating a little sooner. I don't expect to see migrants until September myself, but it could be earlier in September than normal.

If you like birds, the best app purchase I ever made was Sibley's Bird Guide for mobile phones. It has some extensive information on how to identify birds, and has a huge catalog of over 800 species native to north america (and some very rare visitors from other continents.) It was what I used when I first identified the Least Sandpiper in the photo I linked.
