This photograph shows one of the two Greater Yellowlegs that showed up on Tuesday (10/16/12) at the mudflats at the southwest corner of the south lake. In contrast to the yellowlegs (11.5-13.75 in.) is a Killdeer (9.25-10.25 in.) on the left. The Killdeer is a member of the plover family (Charadriidae) while the Greater Yellowlegs is in the sandpiper family (Scolopacidae).
