This is the first Baird's Sandpiper I've seen this year and only the second in the last two years. It's always great to be able to pick them out amongst the many Semipalmated, Least and White-rumped Sandpipers. Mathew's Lake, NS.
These pictures might make some people unhappy but this is nature at work I suppose. I would have liked to have seen the oriole before he met his demise but I probably would have felt worse about his fate.
