Greater Yellowlegs

My pelican trip to the far north end of the Celery Bog was not for naught; I got a new bird! The north basin features something that you don’t see in the main bog: really shallow shallows that the shorebirds love. That’s where I spied a trio of Greater Yellowlegs foraging for food. I would have made the trip sooner had I realized how much fun it is to watch these leggy little birds running around!
