I've been a birder since mid-2006. I always had an interest in birds and watched them in my yard or out my window, but something changed in 2006 and I started to go out and deliberately look for them.
It was amazing how easy it was to add "life birds" to my list. So many birds that were probably always there, that I just never took note of.
It took six years before I found a Hudsonian Godwit. Its a scarce bird and it breeds in Canada near the Hudson Bay and winters in South America. When it Migrates Northbound it comes in across the great plains. When it returns south in the fall it follows the Atlantic Flyway. So there is a small window to see these birds in my area, southern Maine.
This bird was in a large panne in Scarborough Marsh in Cumberland County Main in September of 2012.
