Migrating north


A distant shot in the rain, but I don't think I've posted a photo of a Greater Yellowlegs (Tringa melanoleuca) before.  In our area, Greater Yellowlegs are less common at the coastI don't encounter them often in Bodega Bay.  

In the spring, Greater Yellowlegs are migrating north.  According to The Birds of North America, they'll nest in muskeg habitats in central Canada and southern Alaska.  

This photo was taken along Valley Ford Road in Petaluma on 16 April 2017.
