- Comments: "Same bird as yesterday. Still feeding on the northern beach. Was noticeably different from Greater Yellow-Legs due to the neck not being speckled like the Yellow-Legs. The wings had white speckling but it was very subtle when compared to the dramatic speckling of the Greater Yellow-Legs. The Sony were also smaller in size. It wasn’t as tall and the body wasn’t as large as the Yellow-Legs."
