Lesser Yellowlegs

Alberta Bird #113

 

Is this a Lesser Yellowlegs or Greater, looking at Sibley I tend to thing Lesser because of its bill matching the head size, the lack of black bars on the underside and the bill appears to be straight rather than slightly upturned. I could be wrong however so if someone thinks this is a Greater Yellowlegs I am open to hearing it.

 

Taken at Murray Marsh this past Sunday.
