Observation details

Non-breeding female /young male. Found moments earlier by Bob Cermak and quickly relocated. Shorebird as tall as a Yellowlegs with cinnamon brown tones on upper parts, black blotches on breast, white border to bill/gape area, white under tail coverts. Short black bill, long neck and small rounded head, especially forehead. Orangey/yellow legs. Good comparison with associating Greater Yellowlegs. White underwing linings. Feeding along the grassy edge/waters' edge not as deep or inclined to wade as the yellowlegs. Returning bird for the last three years at this time?
