Baird’s sandpiper


Recommended Posts

I saw this bird yesterday at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge in coastal Massachusetts. The bird was bigger than a peep and smaller than nearby stilt sandpipers. 
 

I wish I was able to get a better photo, but this was the best I could do. The overall size, bill size and shape, markings on the neck and chest, and leg color has me thinking Baird’s sandpiper. However, I’m not sure the photo is good enough for me to make that call. Your thoughts are appreciated!

Hmm now I’m flip flopping back to Bairds. I guess it’s just really hard to tell 

Yeahhhh, I wish I was able to get a better photo in better lighting before some people spooked it. Thanks for taking the time!
