Searching The Water | Greater Yellow-Legs | New York

Greater Yellow-Legs are medium sized wading birds that can be seen in the area of upstate New York where I live.

Watching Greater Yellow-Legs is fun because they are larger than small wading birds like sandpipers. And Greater Yellow-Legs move around more than larger wading birds like great blue heron.

Having a medium sized shorebird that moves around regularly is good for wildlife photography.

A subject that is relatively easy to see is good for obvious reasons. And having a subject in the Greater Yellow-Legs that moves around more allows for a wider variety of photographs to be created during any one sighting of a Greater Yellow-Legs.

I was able to create a series of Greater Yellow-Legs photos when I saw this specimen below at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge in New York.

Photo details: Nikon D500. Nikon 300mm f/4. Focal length 420. ISO 400. 1/2000 sec. f/5.6.
