The HUDSONIAN GODWIT first seen this morning by Rick Bennett and Susan Kirkbride along the Hatfield Marine Science Center Estuary Trail on Yaquina Bay was present on the incoming tide this evening. Observed by several. RED KNOT also present as well as ten MARBLED GODWITS and the continuing flock of ~55 SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHERS.
The Hudsonian Godwit and the Red Knot stayed close with the dowitchers rather than with the nearby Marbled Godwits.
Photos of the Hudsonian Godwit attached.
