Yellow Legs

Although I had seen these Yellow Legs about a week ago I am just getting around to post them now. There were several of them in a flooded area just off the highway in Hoyt , just past the highway bridge.

After studying these photos I have concluded that the Yellow Legs shown directly above is a Lesser Yellow Legs. I would expect to see a slight upturn to its bill if it were a Greater Yellow legs, and the bill looks very straight to me. Also the area around the neck is lighter than that seen on a Greater Yellow Legs would be.
