Hudsonian Godwit

Photo of the Week (April 25th, 2021)

(archive photos of the week here)

Hudsonian Godwits are a species that are always a treat to see. They're gorgeous birds, and given I usually don't see them very often, it makes it even more special when you see one. The last 2 spring migrations however have changed that paradigm somewhat, as both springs have been spectacular for seeing Hudsonian Godwits! For the past week and a half, I've seen Hudsonian Godwits in at least a dozen different places, including seeing >20 at a time in a couple of places. Here's a gorgeous male in some nice morning light, from western Minnehaha County.
