help with CT wading bird?

Recommended Posts

Bird seen among American Black Ducks and Hooded Mergansers in salt waters on coast of Westport, CT, November 15, 9:36am. Sherwood Island State Park (beach and wetlands). Doesn't quite look like any of the shorebirds I recognize. Not a great photo - taken from a distance - but I'm looking at the length of the beak. Any ideas?

Kinda looks like a Lesser Yellowlegs. Not sure if that is possible in CT in Nov?

I agree. Bill length, color, and structure of the bird look like LEYE. It's getting late in CT for them (will likely trip the eBird filter), but I think it's possible in Nov.
