Re: Emeryville Marina, possible Bar-tailed godwit
Wow, I would say that is a juvenile Bar-tailed Godwit even without seeing the bill. Great find!toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
- long primaries
-"striped look" to coverts, and scapulars.
- barred tail with pale background, unlike cinnamon background on barred tail of Marbled.
- tertials with white half circle markings, like a Whimbrel.
- short legs.
.... looks great to me.

Subject: [EBB-Sightings] Emeryville Marina, possible Bar-tailed godwit
I'm posting this for Sharon as she's having trouble sending it to the group for some reason. Her email is sljue1 at gmail.com
There's a decent candidate for a juvenile bar-tailed godwit at Emeryville Marina right now. Long black primaries, much more black and white overall than surrounding marbleds. Appreciate other opinions as I've never actually seen one.
