Black-tailed Godwit

I am very poor in identifying birds, and I have searched online for the past couple of days. I am confused as ever! At first I thought this one is the long billed curlew, but upon closer look, the beak isn't curved. So that was out the window.

Then I thought it might be the short billed curlew, but no, the beak is too long to be it.

Finally, I came across the picture of black-tailed godwit. I checked the tail in my photo, and it seemed to fit! I will just have to go with this name until someone tells me otherwise.

Isn't he/she grand? I am currently visiting California and enjoy the beach scene immensely! It is something that I have always loved to see! Registered & Protected

Beautiful! If you are here in Southern California, I hope you are enjoying the warm weather.
