Rain, 14 degrees, about two hours before low tide. Initially obs made from moving car, but we were so startled by our first godwit sighting at this location we doubled back and parked briefly. Sighting inspired our first ebird list for this location. We used to live nearby but we weren't noting birds down regularly back then (pre 2012), But over the past five years at least we drive past Rodd Point about once a week and look out for godwits specifically, given our filming of Bar-tailed Godwits at Hen and Chicken Bay for BIBY TV. Clearly the godwit presence is now worthy of note generally give signs up about them that we haven't seen before.

Hide this Checklist?
Hiding a checklist will exclude the taxa on it from all forms of eBird output that show a location (including bar charts, maps, and arrival/departure tables), but the observation will still be accessible to you, and will appear on your lists.
It will be considered not public in the eBird database since we cannot approve bird records without accurate location information.
Although we understand that some checklists need to be excluded from eBird's public output due to privacy concerns or other issues, we strongly recommend against this unless absolutely necessary.
