Greater Yellowlegs
This elegant wader probes actively in shallow water, sounding off with strident alarm calls. It breeds in the far north, in hard-to-reach mosquito-ridden muskegs. Consequently, it's one of our least-studied shorebirds.

This photo was taken at the Corte Madera marsh wintering grounds, near Greenbrae, CA. (10/07)
