This looks like a Greater Yellowlegs, Joe. Note the bi-colored bill that is slightly upturned. The length of the bill is also longer than the head (going from the bill base). (The bill length of a Lesser would be roughly the same as the head.)
The presence of barring along the flanks (although somewhat faint in this individual) is also good for this species.

Hey Folks, I just got back from the Horicon Marsh. Can someone help me ID this bird?
