Like the grassy fields and old pastures XXXXX in the northeastern United States(where it is unlike)... there seems to be some comparision happening in option "D"...
Option "B" seems to compare "grassy fields and old pastures" with the "bird"

so "D" seems to be correct..

D, E can be eliminated straightaway.
A :- wrongly compared
B : - bird itself vanishing ... sounds awkward
C:- birds themselves vanishing ... sounds awkward and also C is unnecessary wordy
How they themselves vanishing ??
Go for B

"Like the grassy fields and old pastures that the upland sandpiper needs for feeding and nesting when it returns in May after wintering in the Argentine Pampas, the sandpipers vanishing in the northeastern United States is a result of residential and industrial development and of changes in farming practices."

Answers C, D and E are clearly wrong - I don't think they need an explanation. The original sentence is incorrect not only because there is an illogical comparison, but also because the meaning of the sentence is distorted. It could be interpreted that the sandpipers vanishing AND the grassy fields and old pastures are both results of residential and industrial development/changes in farming. How can grassy fields and old pastures be the result of residential and industrial development and changes in farming? It doesn't make any sense. That is why we need 'IS vanishing' and 'AS a result of' Not 'IS a result.' That is why the answer is B.
