The Lesser Yellowlegs, typical of most sandpipers and shorebirds, is a long distance migratory bird. They breed in the open forests of northern Canada and Alaska. In winter some migrate as far as Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia in Argentina. They are differentiated from the Greater Yellowlegs by overall smaller size and proportionally shorter bill.
