The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.
The Washington Gap Analysis Project could not find any historical research records (i.e., Breeding Bird Atlas, Breeding Bird Survey, Bird Banding and Recovery) for 73 species of birds. Baird's Sandpiper is one of the species.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
This sandpiper also breeds on the Arctic islands and the north coast of Alaska. Similar to the Buff-breasted sandpiper, it migrates through the middle of the continent, and juveniles are uncommon migrants on both coast in the fall.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
