Greater Yellowlegs

This predictably named sandpiper has all the normal trimmings of the innocuous shorebird group. A dull white to its underside with darker browns and grays speckling its back. At 14 inches they're one of the taller, non-heron wading birds, and always lord it over the Lesser Yellowlegs I am sure.
