Canada (Québec) Greater Yellowlegs Sainte-Martine, Quebec ...at least, I think it's a greater yellowlegs! Turns out that identification is pretty darned difficult, and maybe someone here will be able to more positively figure this one out. First, I have very little reference for this individual's relative size, this being my first time seeing any number of yellowlegs. However, I've settled on "greater" due to the bill length, the bill's color and the length of the primary feathers relative to the tail. Small indications I gathered off a website (https://www.thespruce.com/greater-or-lesser-yellowlegs-386349).

Canada (Ontario) Ottawa-Shirley's Bay. Now that's something you don't see every day. The bird flipped this leech around for a couple of minutes trying to knock it out. It eventually swallowed it. Impressive.

Canada (Ontario) Ingleside - It is not always easy to tell Greater from Lesser Yellowlegs if you do not have a direct size comparison. Call notes help and I did have those with this bird. Some Greaters have a slightly upturned bill towards the end but this bird does not. Bill length is a useful guide. In the Lesser, the bill from base to tip is about the same length as the width of the head. In the Greater it can be almost 50% longer than the width of the head.

Killdeer (46) (Charadrius vociferus) User: Chris  (See all photos - 1255) (Comments - 3508)
Canada (Québec) A congregation of several shorebirds foraging at the St-Lazare sands: Killdeer (left), Semipalmated Sandpiper (middle left), Pectoral Sandpiper (middle right) and Lesser Yellowlegs. Unfortunately the Greater Yellowlegs and Semipalmated Plover were not closer enough for the group shot! Can be enlarged by clicking photo twice.

Canada (Québec) I was lucky enough to see a Greater Yellowlegs (right) walk past a Lesser Yellowlegs (left), which gave the comparison in the photo. Seen at the Saint Lazare sand pits while attempting to find the Buff-breasted Sandpiper.
