Lesser Yellowlegs

Each spring these slender shorebirds return to flooded farm fields around the lake and levee to forage. It is interesting to watch as they dart about plucking invertebrates from the shallow water.

“I never for a day gave up listening to the songs of our birds, or watching their peculiar habits, or delineating them in the best way I could.” ~John James Audubon

  1. That’s a pretty bird with amazing stilt-like legs. I like how you captured the reflections while it was wading Rebecca. You always pair your posts with perfect quote and this is another good quote by someone who for sure knows his birds.
