Nebraska Birds


Recommended Posts

I saw these birds recently at crescent lake national wildlife refuge in Nebraska. At first I thought the sandpiper was a Baird's Sandpiper but taking another look through the photos I'm not so sure (because of the yellow legs). The second photo shows two birds which I first thought were Wilson's Phalaropes but again the yellow legs are throwing me off. I am very confused for both so any help is appreciated :).

On the Baird's, I think that what you're perceiving as yellow legs is actually a bent-over grass blade. The legs are visible just to the right of it, and they're shaded enough that you can't tell the color.
