GREATER YELLOWLEGS

Updated: Apr 5, 2021

This lovely creature strutted his stuff at Ridgefield National Wildlife Reserve during March.

I wasn't sure of his identity until I researched several sites and decided that he matches the pictures of a Greater Yellowlegs.


"How can we tell a Greater Yellowlegs from a Lesser Yellowlegs", you ask? Why, by the length of his beak, which is about 1.5 times longer than his head.

You can see by the picture above that he leads with his nose.

But he is quite striking as he stands quietly in the water, not striking.
