Subject: [obol] Baird's Sandpiper?
I saw this sandpiper at Tualatin River NWR today. It was south of the canel, quite distant and there was heavy overcast, so my picture is not great.

I believe it is a Baird’s Sandpiper. Black legs, black bill that is thin and straight. It appears that its primaries are longer than its tail. You can view the image here:

Comments, yea or nay welcomed.
