Another try for the Hudsonian Godwit

Shane and I made another dawn run to Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in an attempt to locate a Hudsonian Godwit. As they say, "three times a charm", as we finally found one. The bird with the exceptionally long bill was feeding in the shallow water at the northwest corner of the East Pond. He was feeding with an American Avocet, another bird with an impressive bill.

Hi Rob, Sorry for posting this here but I couldn't find an email address on your blog.

I'm a freelance journalist and I was wondering if I could interview you for a story about birdblog?

Best
