A Greater Yellowlegs would also exhibit much more streaking along its flanks, along with a longer bill, which has also been brought up. I understand your point about the Stokes CD's, but Yellowlegs have very variable songs, its hard to really nail a phrase down as one or the other, I'm sure someone who has experience with Yellowlegs on their breeding range will have more in a little bit.

(Sorry for the previous post)
I believe I saw and photographed a Greater
Yellowlegs in the Yukon. The location where I was
falls outside the range of this bird. My belief is
based on the songs I heard. If I'm incorrect in my
ID, it is due to the Stokes recordings being
incorrect. Can anyone help me understand why my
bird is NOT a Greater Yellowlegs?
