I believe that this is a lesser Yellowlegs, It is considerably smaller than the one we normally get at home and the beak did not seem to be as long as usual.... I leave the final verdict to the experts. Again, among my preferred moments when birds go on with their usual business totally unaware or undisturbed by the presence of the bird paparazzi. As usual, view large for details.

The Black-necked stilt is one of the first bird I have ever photographed. It is easy to understand how I got hooked, such an elegant and attractive bird. This is not a resident or even a regular visitor of Vancouver Island. However, about five years ago, when I was just starting being interested in photography, four Black-necked stilt were found at Maber Flats and nested there. I believe this was the first and only record of black-necked stilt nesting on Vancouver Island.
