Yellowlegs

Greater YellowLegs: (Wikipedia.org definition) (Tringa melanoleuca) is a large North American shorebird. Adults have long yellow legs and a long, thin, dark bill which has a slight upward curve and is longer than the head. The body is grey-brown on top and white underneath; the neck and breast are streaked with dark brown. These birds forage in shallow water, sometimes using their bills to stir up the water. They mainly eat insects and small fish.
