Description

A godwit that caught my eye as possibly being different from the marbled godwits in the area.

Does anyone else get the sense that this is not a marbled godwit? More than the plumage, the size difference in the first photo (this observation's bird is in the foreground, a marbled godwit to the left), and the orangish base to the bill rather than pink, gives me pause. Is a Hundsonian Godwit a realistic option? Lots of marbled godwits around.
