Mike Patterson's Godwit-palooza

June 03, 2017  •  1 Comment

We were fortunate to find eleven Bar-tailed Godwit along with one Marbled Godwit yesterday afternoon on Sunset Beach.  

A news article on the topic is here: http://www.dailyastorian.com/Local_News/20170602/shorebirds-make-rare-spring-appearance-on-north-coast.

I am hopeful that much more will be written about the unprecedented numbers of these wayward shorebirds showing up on the northern coast of Oregon.
