Nice (Yellow) Legs!

It isn't often that I get to see yellowlegs up close. If you have never seen them up close, the brightness of their yellow legs is stunning.

Here is a juvenile Lesser Yellowlegs that I found foraging along the beach at East Fork the other day. Man, those are some bright legs!

Why are you looking at my legs?

The yellowlegs are comical birds to watch, constantly running and stabbing at the sand. I watched this bird for about half an hour.
