Greater Yellowlegs

Recommended Posts

29 Feb, Mitchel Lake Audubon Center, San Antonio, TX. I believe these two be Greater Yellowlegs. These were two different birds shot at different locations on the ponds and lake at the center. Any help would be appreciated,

Those are actually nonbreeding Spotted Sandpipers. Note the brownish breast and white "spur" near the neck. 

Greater Yellowlegs have longer legs, necks, and bills, a more patterned back, and lack the white "spur."
