Comparison of Grey-tailed Tattler with Bar-tailed Godwit

When spotting waders, in particular at long distances, at which the true size of a bird can be hard to judge, it is always godo to have other, hopefully well-known, bird species nearby for comparison. Here a few photos showing Grey-tailed Tattlers and Bar-tailed Godwits together.
