- 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
