Hi Tweeters -
Today, after finishing up a Westport pelagic trip, I stopped by the
Tokeland Marina before heading home.
At high tide, in amongst all the Marbled Godwits, was a juvie
Bar-tailed Godwit.

Through the hour I was there [~4:00-5:00pm], the Bar-tailed moved
around enough to allow great views of most every angle - Prominent
[and extended] supercillium & eye-line, undersides much whiter than
the palest juvie Marbled Godwit, clean white underwing, tertials w/
a notched pattern... and a white-&-dark barred tail.

I wonder if it was the same bird reported up in Ocean Shores yesterday?
