> This video shows a Greater Yellowlegs eating a tadpole at the Redmond Retention Ponds which are located north of Perrigo Park on the north side of NE 95th Street in Redmond, WA. Midway through the video a Spotted Sandpiper attempts to steal the tadpole. The resulting chase was too rapid for me to video. So the video resumes with the Greater Yellowlegs continuing to tenderize the tadpole, a process that took almost 4 minutes, but I limited the video to under 3 minutes.
