Ruff

Phillipy Pits; Lake Co. TN

Nice size comparison to Lesser Yellowlegs. I only saw it close to Lesser Yellowlegs and Pectorals, but it dwarfed all of them that were around.

I knew the size difference between Ruff and Reeve was the greatest of any shorebird, but it hadn't dawned on me that a Reeve should be about the same size as a Lesser, not a Greater!

This bird normally showed the disheveled look typical of a Ruff, with the scaps all fluffed-up, and ofen a breast feather sticking straight-up.

Nikon Coolpix 995 ,Pentax PF-80ED

other sizes: small medium original
