Baird's Sandpiper Calidris bairdii

Observer

gcwarbler

Date

September 16, 2014

Description

This was a medium-large peep, foraging on the shoreline of the peninsula below Windy Point Park. Substantially larger than nearby Least Sandpipers, horizontal posture, wings extending well beyond tail, blackish bill and legs, crisp fresh white fringes to all of the coverts, scapulars, and tertials with some buff edging on upper scapulars, buffy breast with fine dark streaking, buffy face. In the absence of any size scale in this image, the scaly upperparts and blackish legs separate this bird easily from Least Sandpiper.

Image was digiscoped freehand with iPhone and Nikon 20X scope from about 20 yds.
