These shorebirds were seen at the edge of a flooded cornfield near the Rappahannock River in Warsaw, VA.

I believe both types of  yellowlegs were there. 

I appreciate any help with confirming the two yellowlegs and why the 3 bird in photo 3 might be.

Thank you!

I think both of the yellowlegs are greater.  As for the 3rd bird in the last photo, not sure. Maybe pectoral.

In the middle photo, the birds in the middle of the frame, it looks like you have a Lesser Yellowlegs behind a Greater Yellowlegs preening. The size difference is noticeable.
