When I was going through godwits trying to document the Hudsonian on
Friday, I was thinking "wouldn't it be cool to have all three godwits in
one flock?" Well it turns out I did, I just failed to pick it out of
the crowd.

When I saw Khanh's note I went back through the 20+ plus photos I took.
I do not have photos that show an obvious BAR-TAILED GODWIT when they
are feeding, but I do have flight shots.


The bird is apparently big enough and brown enough not to stand out in
crowd at a distance like the Hudsonian. One has to be more thorough
than I apparently was on Friday...
