- Comments: "First located and photographed by my co-worker, Hannah Garland. Being a novice birder Hannah thought the bird a LEYE. Her photo was not definitive and appeared to be a possible BASA due to the strikingly patterned back, but she insisted the bird had bright yellow legs. I relocated the bird and it did in fact have bright yellow legs and a strikingly patterned back; juvenile BBSA. Buffy colored, bright yellow legs, longish neck, longish legs, longish bodied, a bit larger than a BASA. The head was slightly bulbous and the back very patterned. (photo by Shanna Bedesem"
