Hudsonian Godwit

in Blog, Weekend Birding

Making our [tag]birding[/tag] rounds this morning, we strayed from the usual route and decided to [tag]bird[/tag] Pine Point in Scarborough, [tag]Maine[/tag]. Not really dressed for temperatures in the upper 20’s with gusty winds, I exited the warm confines of the car and walked out onto the beach at the Co-op. What a pleasant surprise to find a Hudsonian Godwit feeding along the waters edge!

Using the upside down boats on the beach as cover, I crouched and began photographing the wayward bird. Others began to arrive to view the bird, so I pulled back and went to the car. Suffice to say, the heater got a good workout.

Enjoy the photos of this unusual late season treat. I will return tomorrow with more photos of other [tag]birds[/tag] and a complete species list of what we saw over the Verteran’s Day weekend.
