Ottawa - I don't need more Yellowlegs pictures but I couldn't pass up this setting and the light. There is very little crop on this picture. The bird was close.

Ottawa - When a Peregrine swooped onto the beach, the shorebirds froze. This yellowlegs dropped into the water (which was only three inches deep) and at one point was barely above the surface, with only part of the head and back exposed. It remained in this position for 20 minutes after the falcon had moved on.

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).

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.
