Which Yellowlegs?


Recommended Posts

Wait for the experts, but I believe so. Based on the criteria usually shared here: wings (primary projection?) not quite to the end of the tail, slight upcurve to the bill, visible tarsus all point to Greater. I think the bill is also a bit pale close to the base but it's hard to see in this picture.

FYI, primary projection refers directly to the extension of the primary feathers fast the secondaries.
