I went kayaking recently on Tomales Bay, and found one of my favorite shorebirds, the Marbled Godwit. It was one of the first sandpipers that I learned to identify, as it is very distinctive with its barred cinnamon coloration, and its two-toned upturned beak. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
P.S. Please excuse the wind noise, I am looking into ways to remove it. Any suggestions as to post and pre production methods would be appreciated.
