I was out walking day and heard a Greater Yellowlegs calling as it flew by. I started looking and it turned out to be a starling. It was doing a perfect mimic.

Those starlings often get me. I regularly hear them mimic Killdeer, and I occasionally hear them mimic Western Wood-pewees. So, anything is possible with those copycats.
