Flight Of The Godwit
Photo By Bob Baker

  • Title: Flight Of The Godwit
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary
  • Nearest Town: Eureka
  • Brief Directions: The sanctuary is located north of Eureka, California approximately 1 mile off of the Pacific Coast Highway at Arcata.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: The Bar-tailed Godwit is rarely seen in the lower 48 states. This flock caught my attention resting on a narrow grassy spit. The flock would, for reasons not apparent to me, take-off circle around and land back where they start from every five to ten minutes. I was told by a biologist on site that it was common behavior for the Godwit.
  • Gear: Nikon D70 with 500 mm Sigma lens
