Greater Yellowlegs (Tringa melanoleuca)


Greater Yellowlegs are larger than the Lesser Yellowlegs with a longer bill.  Likes to hang around shallow water or mud-flats.  Will forage for vertabrae or chase after small fish. 

I photographed these in the drainage ditch that runs in front of the old K-mart building here in San Angelo.
