Greater Yellowlegs

Shorebirds, such as this Greater Yellowlegs that was catching fish in the Willamette River this evening, are already on the move from their breeding areas in the far north to their wintering grounds somewhere between the southern U.S. and almost anywhere in S. America. The six small fish that were swallowed during the 20 minutes I watched should provide fuel for quite a few miles during the night.
