Today’s highlight was a Baird’s Sandpiper at the northern end of the Cambridge Res. When there was one (or two) here a few years ago, views were way distant and in bad light. Today’s bird started at medium range and ended up being the closest bird to the road (within 5 feet!).
Slightly larger size and much longer wings compared to Semipalmated Sandpipers are obvious here.
Size, long wings, and dark rump. Think that’s a Least below.
General buffiness, long wings, very fine-tipped bill.
And another flight shot that I really like.
