This morning there was something new poking around the shallow rim of the pond behind my backyard. I believe it was a Greater Yellowlegs. I grabbed my point and shoot camera and snapped off a few quick pictures.
Is this a Greater Yellowlegs?
A little bit closer…
Probing for water bugs.
I did a little research and based on its behavior — probing and poking in the pond shallows for insects — and its great yellow legs, I am calling it a Greater Yellowlegs. What do you think?
