Marbled Godwit

I don’t get very many shots of these. I have read this is where they winter.

They are about 18 inches (45 c) tall making them a larger shore bird.

I think the other bird here is a Sanderling, a small shore bird. This gives some perspective as to size.

When seen up close they are actually a nice looking bird.
