My wife and I walked the Nisqually dike and boardwalk this morning, during a high tide and at times heavy rain. Five Marbled Godwits were observed on the west side of the dike just before the beginning of the boardwalk. These were seen feeding among some Green-winged Teal and other ducks. At one point they got up in flight and were easily identifiable by their long, slightly upturned bills and a buffy,orangish under wing. At the very end of the boardwalk were a dozen Common Terns along with 6 Caspian Terns and one more Marbled Godwit.
