Baird's Sandpiper (Calidris bairdii) breeds in the high Arctic in northern summer, then winters in western and southern South America, including the Falkland Islands, in the austral summer. This non-breeding Baird's Sandpiper was feeding in the shallows of Laguna los Palos on the busy Route 9 in southern Chile.
Including Bismarck Archipelago and Bougainville
All of the 943 species known to occur are covered, including the extraordinarily high total of 456 endemics, as well as 5 introduced species, 2 species yet to be formally described and a separate appendix with 75 vagrants. Subspecies are listed also to give a comprehensive overview of the remarkable regional avifauna.
