  1. Thank you. The 2018 shots were with a Canon 1DX II and Canon 100-400 II. The 2017 ones were with a Canon 7D II and Sigma 150-600. I've since ditched dSLRs in favor of mirrorless. I now shoot Sony a9 and Sony 200-600mm.
  2. Seen yesterday at Loess Bluffs in NW Missouri. Although it hung out with an Avocet (shown for scale), a pair of Dowitchers, and the ever-present Killdeer, I didn't see any others like it there. Shot under overcast skies, so the colors may be a bit off. Also heavily cr opped. I'm leaning towards Greater Yellowlegs B/C of the bill length to head ratio.
  3. Going through my archives and wanted to verify that I ID'd these correctly. Three are the same bird, but don't recall if the in flight shot is though. Seen at DeSoto NWR, IA, back on 4/16/2018. Was this a Wilson's Snipe?
  4. Going through my archives and wanted to verify that I ID'd these correctly. All the same bird, seen at L oess Bluffs NWR, MO, back on 10/31/2017. Was this a Wilson's Snipe?
  5. Wouldn't short-billed have more orange tones on the breast and flanks?
  6. Adding one more pic. In lieu of any flight shots, I hope this yoga stretch may help with wing plumage?
  7. Seen yesterday at Loess Bluffs NWR in NW Missouri. I have a few shots of them next to an American Avocet, if that'd help with size comparison. I don't think I ever saw them fly, but they never strayed more than a foot apart. My immediate thought was Wilson's Snipe, but now I'm leaning towards Long-billed Dowitcher.
  8. Thank you very much AlexHenry for the quick reply and the informative comments as well.
  9. Seen this afternoon at Loess Bluffs NWR in NW Missouri. Is this any of the three guesses in the title, or am I way off?
