Greater Yellowlegs captured by Z 9 / Z600f4 TC @840mm handheld

Shorebirds are heading north towards their nesting grounds and their sporting their spring duds. Most are use to seeing them in their winter browns and grays and when they see a common bird like the Greater Yellowlegs in their spring finest, they don’t recognize the species they’ve seen a hundred times before. Now is the time as they are heading north to photograph them in their gorgeous spring feathers. I highly recommend getting the photo first even if you don’t recognize them and then use Merlin later to ID them if you need, just get the photo. I’m here to tell ya, spring duds are appearing!
