Saturday's Critters – Godwit of Snell's Beach

These birds stay together in groups and it is hard to get one on their own, let alone get close enough to photograph them.

The locals of Snell’s Beach leave these birds alone but I hid behind a tree to get this photo. 

It looks like a very sensible bird. Godwits migrate from Russia or Alaska to New Zealand and back every year, and they fly with hardly any breaks nor food. They stop and refuel in China on the way there and back. 

Godwits are birds of endurance and a testimony for determination.
