Marbled Godwit

Marbled Godwit - Limosa fedoa


Ballona Wetlands, Los Angeles, 5.9.2015, several birds.


Distinctive subtle colouring and markings differentiate this from other Godwits.

They feed by probing in mud with their long bills, and the image underneath shows rhynchokinesis, the ability to flex the upper mandible.
