Description

There were 500 or more Black-tailed Godwits visible at this location. Many were way too far out for photos, but I managed a few OK shots. The 3rd image shows about 10 in one view. A shot or two will show the distinctive wing and tail pattern.

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.
