While at F. Howard Park in Tarpon Springs, Florida, I noticed this smaller, lighter colored Godwit mixed in with a flock of Marbled Godwits. Unsure of an ID, I photographed the bird and checked the ID later. I was shocked to find that it was a Bar-tailed Godwit. It is only the second record of this bird for the Pinellas County area.
