A few birds needing ID help. 1) A shorebird, 2) A duck and 3) lesser or Greater Yellowlegs help

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

All birds seen today August 1, 2021 at the Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont California.  Around 12:00pm today.

Photo 1 & 2) Potentially a Wilson’s Phalarope?

Photo 3) Which Yellow Leg (Lesser or Greater). Any way to tell.

Photo 4) Greater Scaup?

Thanks in advance!

little barring on flanks, and longer wings than tail.

It’s late summer, and the bird is worn. The bill is definitely upturned, and if you look closely, you can see a pale base to the bill. It’s hard to see because the bird is backlit.
