I may live in San Diego County, but my home and heart will always be in Missouri.

Also, it has that overall long-legged appearance that I generally get from Greater (not the best field mark, but something I've noticed)

Compare Dancingbear's bird to this Lesser Yellowlegs and this Greater Yellowlegs (neither photo is mine).
Notice how much more extensive the color on the bill is on the Greater and how much longer the bill is.

I may be willing to change my vote. Upon staring at the bill with my face inches from the screen, the bill does look slightly upturned. and the size of the bill may be a trick of the slight angle turning away. Grandpa always carries hefty powers of persuasion and that's a good point on the flanks.........
I just tallied, and that's 6-5 in favor of Lesser haha. Definitely a tough one...
