Beautiful Greater Yellowlegs At Boat Meadow Beach On Cape Cod.

“A Greater Yellowlegs is a slender, long-necked  and small-headed shorebird with bright yellow legs.  The Greater Yellowlegs strides purposefully across mudflats and marshes with a distinctive high-stepping gait, occasionally breaking into a run to chase aquatic prey.”
