Yellowlegs, Lesser
-Tringa flavipes (Gmelin)

Bill straight, 3.4 to 3.5 cm. Almost exactly like Greater Yellowledgs in all plumages, but decidedly smaller and lacks any suggestion of an uptilted bill. Lacks faint whitish marbling usually present on underside of the flight feathers of Greater Yellowlegs.
