Shorebirds come in all sizes. Some are small, some are tall. Sometimes, that’s how you can tell who’s who by the relative size to another bird. This shot helps to illustrate that. The bird in front is a Greater Yellowlegs, in breeding plumage. The bird behind the Greater Yellowlegs is an American Avocet, not yet in breeding plumage, but a significantly larger bird.
