Lesser Yellowlegs??

Recommended Posts

I saw this bird in Yolo County today and believe it's a Lesser Yellowlegs.  Would love a confirmation or correction.  Second photo is with the same grouping of birds. Not sure if we have mixed species, but would love insight. Appreciate all of the help. 


Thanks!

I'd be inclined to call them greater yellowlegs. I can't judge the second picture very good but overall size/shape/appearance and length of bill gives me that feel.  In the first picture the bill is at an angle in the pose but it looks long enough and appears to have a slight upturn, a characteristic of the greater.
So that's my thoughts. Wait for confirmation from others.
