^^ Looks like a Whimbrel to me but could be a Long-billed curlew.

Hard to tell for sure without a direct profile of the bill. cheers

Not super sharp but got the launch. smile2

Nice launch! Too much cloud cover from my place to get any good eclipse photos last night, but here are a few moon & star shots from camping out in the Mojave National Preserve this weekend.

Moon halo.

A male and female Bushtit.
The males have dark eyes and the females have light bright eyes.
These are really small birds like Hummingbird size but with a longer tail.
They never sit still so not easy targets.

I appreciate these great photos, Keenfish, but the middle-schooler still left in me must say [in a Beavis-Butthead type of voice] : "Hehe, he said bushtit".
