Very instructive and excellent photos. The images also illustrate the difference in color and shape of the Bill's. Greater Yellowlegs typically show the ball third of the black bill to be lighter gray and the bill as a whole is slightly upturned or recurve, while the Leser has a shorter and straight bill that is entirely one shade of black.
Thanks for sharing these Jim!
