Estero Beach - December 7, 2014

Went for a beach walk this morning and found so many great birds...and one seemingly out of place little frog I had to bring back to the line of plants at the edge of the beach.  I can finally pick out a least sandpiper with its yellow legs and small stature, and a lesser black backed gull also with yellow legs but large stature.  I can't figure out the other little sandpiper however, maybe semipalmated?  Shorebirds are so hard to id!
