Today's Oil Study - Yellowlegs

The Lesser Yellowlegs is a North American wader, but I checked my New Zealand bird guide just to make sure they aren't found here. Some arctic migrants such as the bar-tailed godwit, turnstone and red-necked stint spend the summer in New Zealand. I was surprised to see the lesser yellowlegs in my New Zealand bird guide, but it's considered a 'rare arctic migrant'.  It's occasionally seen on New Zealand lakes and estuaries.
