Greater Yellowlegs (31) (Tringa melanoleuca) User: Stephane  (See all photos - 26) (Comments - 13)
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) 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.

Canada (Ontario) Ingleside - This bird was feeding with Lesser Yellowlegs for a nice comparison. Note light eye stripe and slightly decurved bill tip. Bird is a bit smaller than Yellowlegs and legs are greeny-yellow.

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.
