My time in Arcata, CA, taking part in the annual Godwit Days Festival, just wrapped up. The birding was fantastic, the weather could not have been better, and the people were outstanding. Thanks to everyone for making it happen.
I only have a few photos to share, since photography was definitely not a priority for me, but I did manage to grab an esoteric mix of images from the weekend. If I had photos of the clouds of Marbled Godwits and Dunlin, the Bullock’s Oriole, Black-throated Gray Warbler, flocks of Aleutian Cackling Geese, displaying Allen’s Hummingbird, etc. any of those would make much better promotions for the festival. Instead I present a few “interesting” photos, all connected to fond memories of a wonderful weekend.
