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.
