October 7, 2011 Another flock of Hudsonian Godwits!

While birding at Britannia around noon I observed a flock of Hudsonian Godwits fly in and land on the upper part of the Deschenes Rapids. With the continuing low water levels along the Ottawa River there is lots of shoreline habitat for waders. i counted 17 juvenile Hudsonian godwits and they remained out on the rocks/ shallow water feeding. Not the typical location!

Normally, most records of flocks of Hudsonian Godwits are encountered during inclement weather conditions, not sunny and clear and +22c!
