Common Greenshank

100+ birders and scopes on this bird. Great views of COGR. Paler and more grayish than GRYE. Shared scope with other birders and got on this bird many times - followed with binocs as well and when it took flight I could see triangle white plumage on the dorsal side. Was next to GRYE to contrast greenish legs of the COGR. Lifer.
