Baird's Sandpipers are generally found individually or in small flocks. Flock size can be greater mid-continent where they are more common. Baird's Sandpipers typically forage along the upper edge of mudflats, or up on sandy beaches, often in vegetation. They will sometimes forage in the water, but not regularly. Birds in the mountains will feed on snow banks. They move quickly with heads up, picking up surface prey. More

It breeds on the arctic tundra of western Greenland, Canada and Alaska, and its range extends westwards into extreme north-east Siberia. It winters in southern South America from the high Andes down to sea level, and as far south as Patagonia where it is plentiful (Cramp 1983). More
