Greater Yellowlegs added!

Today I birded a lot in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and got some great birds including a Trumpeter Swan, in fact the immature that has hung around in my area since January and seen off and on (see 1st post in blog) but known of the good birds were year ones..except 1.

While at home for a few hour "stop" in between birding outings I saw that a possibly Franklin's Gull (really rare for my area) had been spotted at a pond 25 minutes away.  I had to go look.  Nope, the gulls turned out to be Bonaparte's HOWEVER, also at the pond was a Greater Yellowlegs, year bird # 244!

Until later,
