And what's a Sharp-tailed Sandpiper? Audubon explains:
This Asian shorebird is related to our Pectoral Sandpiper, and like that species is it a long-distance migrant, traveling from Siberia to Australia and New Zealand. A few reach North America every year, mostly fall migrants in Alaska and the Pacific northwest; a casual stray in other areas, rare in spring.

*mega. If accepted, first report for Panama (and Central America). Similar size to nearby Pectoral Sandpiper but more pot-bellied and short-necked. Contrasting chestnut crown and white eyebrow. Buff breast, white throat... just very few and non-contrasting streaks on sides of the breast and a thin necklace under the throat in the upper breast. White belly and vent. The vent with black streaks. Yellow-green legs.But that was not the only highlight of the day:

6 Stilt Sandpipers
3 White-rumped Sandpipers
