I definitely agree, especially with those abdomen markings. My other Red knot spottings are Red knots though.

These actually look better for Short-billed Dowitchers. Note the bills aren't solid black like should be seen in REKN, the undertail coverts are marked strongly, the breast is very heavily smudged almost making it a solid brown, the limited white supercillium sticking mostly around the eye, the dark chin/throat, the light edging to the scapulars, etc...
