Greater Yellowlegs

There was a single Greater Yellowlegs at Spring Canyon a few mornings ago.  Except for some Killdeer, that have a much broader habitat, these are the first shorebirds I’ve seen at Meredith this year.  The birds are probably there, but because of the larger lake that makes the shallows inaccessible to us boatless folks, fewer sandy shorelines, and more marshy edges to the lake they are just more difficult to find.Greater Yellowlegs (59) (1024x704) Greater Yellowlegs (60) (1024x774)
