Little hard to tell but most likely Lesser Yellowlegs; a more widesperad breeder in Yukon than Greater
Yellowlegs. Also don’t see any upturn in the bill which is characteristic of Greater.
Probably in Mexico by now.

Looks like they are Sharp-Tailed Sandpipers.
Interesting facts: A group of sandpipers has many collective nouns, including a “bind”, “contradiction”, “fling”, “hill”, and “time-step” of sandpipers.
They do pass through BC on their migration routes.
