BLACK-TAILED GODWIT (DANUBE DELTA)

The black-tailed godwit (Limosa limosa) is a large, long-legged, long-billed shorebird first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1758. It is a member of the Limosa genus, the godwits. There are three subspecies, all with orange head, neck and chest in breeding plumage and dull grey-brown winter coloration, and distinctive black and white wingbar at all times.

Its breeding range stretches from Iceland through Europe and areas of central Asia. Black-tailed godwits spend (the northern hemisphere) winter in areas as diverse as the Indian Subcontinent, Australia, western Europe and west Africa. The species breeds in fens, lake edges, damp meadows, moorlands and bogs and uses estuaries, swamps and floods in (the northern hemisphere) winter; it is more likely to be found inland and on freshwater than the similar bar-tailed godwit. The world population is estimated to be 634,000 to 805,000 birds and is classified as Near Threatened.

Hello Marius,
I don't believe I have ever seen a Godwit in the wild, its body features remind me of a type of Sandpiper, which I'm used to seeing.
The long bill immediately catches my attention while the subtle colors in its plumage makes it quite attractive.
Super sharp focus revealing much detail and just the right amount of exposure. Great eye contact. A real beauty!!

Hello Marius,
Although 'Black-tailed Godwit' is also in India but I haven't captured it yet. So nice to see it. Well captured. Good reflection and nice exposure.
Thanks for showing,
Regards,
Srikumar
