Baird's Sandpiper

Coyote Hills Regional Park, Fremont California

I went back to No Name Trail this afternoon hoping to get more shots of the Semipalmated Sandpiper that I saw in the morning with better light. And the Baird's Sandpiper that I photographed a couple of days ago decided to give me another chance and landed about 15 feet away from me. Glad to see it still hanging around with those Least Sandpipers.

 

Lots of Flickr buddies (Gail, Elliot, Davor, Luis, Steve, Mark and Jim) showed up today to enjoy this rare treat - seeing Barid's and Semipalmated Sandpipers within a place smaller than a basket court in Bay Area.
