Yellowlegs Lesser and Greater? Northern Ontario

Recommended Posts

I agree with Lesser and Greater for the left and middle birds.  But the one in the back looks like a Lesser to me - proportions, plumage, and bill length seem to match the Lesser in the front better.

I agree with this. Greater in the middle and Lessers on the left and the right.

Overall shape/structure is a good clue for identifying yellowlegs, and is especially helpful when you have both species together like this.
