The First Days of April
Godwit Days here, and it looks like we're going to miss it again this year. We'll be in southern California visiting with my mom. So we went out to the marsh on Saturday to look around for Arcata's famous Marbled Godwits. There were hundreds, if not thousands of them. The one photo I took that might have given a hint of their sheer numbers is blurry. I'm posting it anyway, because I think even in its blurriness you get a sense of how many Godwits there are here. There is a second island that had just as many birds on it.
It really is too bad we're going to miss the Godwit Days celebration of spring bird migrations, but we were delighted to get a good look at the Marbled Godwits in all their long-billed beauty.
(Health Update: My mom is having a liver biopsy on Monday. We think it will provide the answers we've been waiting for. She is feeling stronger and sounding like her incredibly vital self. We are hopeful, and we will keep you posted. Thank you for your kind thoughts and good wishes.)
