Distribution: The Baird's Sandpiper does not have many distinguishing markings or colours. It does have a streaking pattern down its nape and neck, with some lines as far as on to its upper flanks. This shorebird nests farther north than most birds. Seen from the northern shores of the Yukon, Northwest and Nunavut Territories and the northern arctic islands. It is also seen on the most northern reaches of Alaska. In late summer, it migrates back to its wintering grounds in South America.
