Lesser Yellowlegs in TEXAS (1 Viewer)

Dear members and bird watchers!

Attached pictures are of a bird I have ID as a Lesser yellowlegs due to the length of the bill.

Picture #1 have a black bill as per the book

Picture #2 have a black and yellow bill and in my book the bill should be black. There is a picture in eBird of a bird that have a little yellow on the bill.

So I start to get a little uncertain about the ID of the bird in picture #2

Kind regards and happy birding!
Aladdin

(if you look carefully you can see a pale base to the yellowlegs's bill)
Cheers!

I spotted this yellow bit on eBird as well and thats the reason I got suspicious about my ID. And as usually, the birdforum helped me and put me straight and I am very grateful for this.

I have been s supporter of Birdforum, but this year I cannot pay as they only accept Paypal. Any good tip on how to work around this?

Kind Regards

It's been discusssed before:


It seems to me that it's now possible to pay via PayPal using the guest account even if you already have an account, although I'm not sure if it works for you:
click 'Purchase' here: https://www.birdforum.net/account/upgrades >> 'Pay with your debit or credit card' >> type your email address >> 'Continue as a guest' >> fill in the details >> 'Pay now as a guest'

I only hope I'm not misleading you about this, somehow (I don't exactly trust PayPal either).

Thank you!

I have tried this but as PayPal don't work in Thailand I cannot pay. But I will see if I can find away around this.

Cheers!
