Location: Blackpoint Wildlife Drive, Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge

I am a Greater Yellowlegs,
Compare my head to my beak.
The length of my beak is greater than the depth of my head,
Lesser Yellowlegs have the opposite physique*.

*In general. As shown in the linked article, the beak length can vary quite widely.
