Marbled godwit        Images © Mark A. Chappell

These largely winter-plumage marbled godwits were on beaches in Pacific Grove and San Diego, California.  The flying bird in the picture below at right is in spring plumage, but molting; it was photographed at Bolsa Chica wetlands in coastal Orange County, California.

Pictures of marbled godwits in flight are on this page, and preening godwits are here.
