Baird’s Sandpiper: York County, Maine, USA, September 2023 — Though they are classified as rare on the east coast and in Maine, I am pretty sure this is a Baird’s Sandpiper…a lone bird feeding quite far from all the Semi-palmated Sandpipers and Plovers, in the dry sand above the surf line. OM Systems OM-1 with ED 100-400mm zoom at 800mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixomator Pro. ISO 200 @ f7.1 @ 1/1000th.
