Interestingly there was a group of 10 photographed near Harrisonburg, VA
back on 8/29. No storms at the time.

Actually a major dude had the godwits: Michael O'Brien and his brother John
were watching the ocean from a beach house on vacation up at Nags Head in
mid August.

I've seen a big bunch offshore back in the 90s. It's probably in the Chat
somewhere in the seasonal roundup. I've also seen a dozen or more on the
flooded ground up in Rodanthe during a tropical storm some years back.
