Gobs of Godwits
Our New Zealand naturalist Rebecca Bowater recently sent in a couple of pics of Bar-tailed Godwits. As you recall they migrate from Alaska to New Zealand, flying non-stop. The first shot shows hundreds (thousands?) of them flying up with some Red Knots mixed in. The next one is a closeup of one flying overhead.
The first picture reminded me of one I took when we were birding in Morro Bay, California. Thousands of Godwits flying around the water’s edge.

Nature is absolutely incredible!
Agreed. That’s why we enjoy birding so much.
