Marbled or Hudsonian Godwit?


Recommended Posts

Thanks for your responses. What is puzzling me is that the bill seems to be a bit longer that most of the Hudsonions that I have seen. Is that size normal for a Hudsonion? To be honest I really thought that it was a Marbled Godwit, but I guess not, as no one has suggested that it could be a Marbled Godwit!

Wish I had more pictures, but I can't find anymore!

I think it's fairly clear that this is a Hudsonian Godwit. It's not a Marbled Godwit because there is not even a trace of buffy, plus it lacks dark bars, etc. This should definitely be put on eBird.
