Taking Nick's response one step further, technically, Killdeer are plovers, family Charadriidae.  Spotted Sandpipers are, well, sandpipers, family Scolopacidae.  Both birds are in the same order and I'll let you all look that one up!

Hi Ben,

Killdeer and Spotted Sandpipers are different species. Check out a field
guide.
