I spent a couple hours watching these birds yesterday morning. The weather was amazing after a week of rain. I had to have help with the IDs but everyone assured me they were Lesser not Greater Yellowlegs.

Nice shots, Rich. Shorebirds are tough. A good rule of thumb for yellowlegs is that the bill on the lesser is about the same length as the head from front to nape while the greater's bill length is much longer.
