Marbled Godwit Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: A gorgeous large shorebird, where I see Marbled Godwit the most is often seemingly far from water, on the Fort Pierre National Grasslands. They do act like typical shorebirds though for much of the year, using shorelines and mudflats.  My favorite photo is of a bird that took flight while I was walking along the shores of Lake Thompson, circling me a few times and scolding me for good measure. I was happy to catch it in great light with an open bill as it called.
