Bird found at ponds on CR 227. Was there for 2+ hours. Documented well by many birders with far better cameras than mine. Joseph Kennedy got some great shots.
The black-tailed godwit (Limosa limosa) is a large, long-legged, long-billed shorebird first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1758. It is a member of the Limosa genus, the godwits. There are three subspecies, all with orange head, neck and chest in breeding plumage and dull grey-brown winter coloration, and distinctive black and white wingbar at all times.
