Observation details

Found right in front of us at 10 m distance, and one of us (JVD) immediately called out "Baird's Sandpiper!" based on silhouette, then and snapped a couple of photos heavily backlit by the setting sun. We tried to move for a better angle light-wise, but they must have flown off, because we could not locate them again. Medium-long, very fine-tipped bill; steep forehead; long primary projection; complete chest band; and pale loral spot all good field marks for this species.
