Mammal scat in a depression on top of a large boulder. The precarious approach from the ground seems to rule out local lagomorphs, so its size suggests a ground squirrel.

I have been wanting to get a pic of one of these guys for years when visiting my mother and finally one was home when I had my camera with me.

I took about ten shots as I got ever closer until the bird took off and I then tried to take a picture of it in flight.

Description

In the field, from behavior, size, and bill straightness, I thought this bird was a Lesser Yellowlegs. It did a lot of coasting and swimming, a la phalarope style. But looking at the picture now, I wanted to get some other opinions on Greater/Lesser.
