Baird's Sandpiper Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: One of the most common shorebird migrants that moves through in the spring, I don't have that one "killer" shot of a Baird's Sandpiper, but here's a good one in muted light that shows the major identification features (black legs, dark, slightly drooped bill, wingtips extending well past the tail).
