Hi All! Shot this bird today but I'm not sure what it is. According to my bird book its either the Lesser Yellowlegs or the Greater Yellowlegs.

Thanks helping me solve my Yellowlegs mystery!

My guess would be a Willet based on the first shot.

dmwphoto, You are correct...good call! I looked up the Willet in my "Birds of North America" and there he is on page 179. The author writes "The Willet looks boring until it flies, showing off spectacular wings." which was what caught my eyes and started shooting him.

Thanks, Anthony
