Baird's Sandpiper

On the mud edge on the the far side of the IC pond to the R of the Osprey Tower. On it's own, not associating with the small group of Leasts and Semis also feeding on the flats further to the L. Juvenile with long wings, breast band and scaly looking wing pattern. Searched for later with Mike Britt but only two Least Sand left on the pond.

Least Sandpiper
1
Buff-breasted Sandpiper

Picked up in the scope walking through the tall weeds on the sand at the rear of the Liberty bay beach adjacent to the start of the rock breakwater. Walked through my scope view whilst scanning. One more longer look as it walked between the high weeds towards Port Liberte. Tried to view from the next two parking lots but could not see it - it's far from these spots. Very high tide. Not seen later but there's a long and deep weed and wrack line between LSP and Port Liberte.
