Observation details

Don't blame me for this one! Even though I had noted the upswept bills on my photos, I still went with the predictable Long-billed Dowitcher in my original list for this outing. It was Mexico's birder extraordinaire Amy McAndrews who looked at my photo and told me 1) they were Godwits, and 2) they didn't look Marbled. So I went back to my photos and reworked them to get the best possible images. Note: Barring on flanks or individual bird, Strong dark/light pattern on face of bird facing camera, and the hints of reddish coloring on the breast of bird on right.
