      Hi all,

      The Hudsonian Godwit was still present at Kershaw Pond when I left there this evening at 6:45pm. There were about 15 birders present when I arrived at 6pm and the bird was sleeping in the same location in the SW portion of the pond as when found by Guy and Elizabeth this morning. Once in awhile the bird would preen for a few minutes but then go right back to the sleeping position in the presense of numerous Black-necked Stilt, American Avocet and Cinnamon Teal. As the light faded, everyone present was suddenly able to get fantastic looks at the bird in flight, well all of the birds actually, and I am sure some exceptioanly good flight photographs were had as the entire flock of birds suddenly erupted to the air and circled in front of us for a few minutes.

      Will the bird be there in the morning? Your guess is as good as mine but I am guessing not. If I were that bird, I would have left there at 6:40pm.

      See ya at the sea......................

      The Hudsonain Godwit continues as of 10 a.m. on the pond along Kershaw Road due west of the main grove of trees at Finney Lake. The bird is finding lots of food and so hopefully it'll stay until it is ready to fly a thousand miles or more.

      Paul drove... fast. ;-)
