Video of an Adult Baird's Sandpiper found on the East Pond at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge Queens County...

According to Bull's Birds of New York State, the entry for Baird's Sandpiper indicate that there are only 2 NYSARC (New York State Avian Record Committee) accepted spring records. One from Duchess County in 1979 and the other from Shinnecock Inlet in 1981. No mention on what plumage these birds were in. I have yet to hear of any adult records for our area, so this could be the first. Wished the video was better quality but hopefully viewers will get an idea of what this bird looks like in the field.
