FOUR Hudsonian Godwits - Fort Bragg, CA
- Wed, 26 Aug, 2009 -- This morning 4 HUDSONIAN GODWITS were
discovered at Glass Beach in Fort Bragg (MEN). The four birds
(3 imm. and 1 poss. adult) were found by Dorothy Tobkin. The
birds were quite tame, and allowed people to approach them
easily within 5 or 6 feet. Photos: Mendobirds@yahoogroups.com
The birds were flushed by a rogue wave at approx. 2-pm. They
circled the cove and flew north toward Pudding Creek mouth and
Virgin Creek mouth. At least 3 excellent birders have tried to
re-locate the HUGOs. No word has been received at this time.
These Hudsonian Godwits are the 1st MEN County record.
