Buff-breasted and Baird's Sandpipers were very accomodating at Hammonasset today. After i got some photos, i sat back and watched how the birds reacted to birders in cars VS birders on foot. It was no surprise to find that staying in your car is far less intrusive and disturbing to these birds than approaching on foot. Both species tolerated even close approach by automobile but retreated or flushed when birders exited their vehicles and approached on foot. 

For what its worth.
