logical comparison, B compares grassy fields to the Birds -- which are vanishing. Hence correct

"Like the grassy fields and old pastures" cannot compare to the "sandpiper", "that...", or "in the Northeastern of US". Only correct choice is "the bird".

+1 for B

the bird - grassy fields can go together but not sandpiper.
Hence B.
