    1. Thanks, Ferdy. There are a couple of very informed birders on the island so I sent the photo to them for ID ideas. I’m hoping that they are correct! Posted one month ago
      1. Good idea to double check, and no loss when incorrect, we'll just change it then. Posted one month ago

The Greater Yellowlegs, ''Tringa melanoleuca'', is a large North American shorebird, similar in appearance to the smaller Lesser Yellowlegs. Its closest relative, however, is the Greenshank, which together with the Spotted Redshank form a close-knit group.
