Hudsonian Godwits are very-long-distance migrants, which includes single flights of >2000 miles. Efficiency of flight is better with longer, narrower wings, particularly with longer hands. That results in longer primary projection, which is one of the most certain ways to distinguish browny-looking Hudwits from Marwits.
