Back in April I got to see my lifer Hudsonian Godwits. They were seen about 15 minutes from my house so my dad and I headed out to find my no. 1 nemesis life bird. When we got to the lake I had trouble finding them in the low light but with some effort I was able to find them feeding on the far shore. They all took off and I counted at least six in the group before they were all gone. The Hudsonian Godwit was life bird 306 and Iowa bird 263 for me. Now I have to find my nemesis Marbled Godwit!
