Camera Critters #225

A week ago, I got the news that there was a rare bird (for this area) at the ponds north of town.  Luckily, a birding friend was also heading there to see the bird.

It didn’t take long to find the bird.

On the left is the rare bird…a Marbled Godwit.  On the right is a common bird for this area…a Greater Yellowlegs.

The Godwit reminds me of a Sandpiper. (but you already knew that hehe)
