Upon further review, we think the Hackensackian Godwit is a Marbled Godwit… Any thoughts? And it is still at DeKorte — around low tide. Out the Transco Trail toward the end along the mud.
More on Marbled Godwits here.

A dowitcher??? A godwit??? Any identification would be appreciated.
We are leaning toward Hackensackian Godwit. (As we all know, if it had been a bit closer to a river to the east, we would have gone with Hudsonian Godwit.) (Thanks, Ron!)
