My dad and I found a Marbled Godwit in a flooded field at Kidd Lake. The 
field is located at the intersection of Stringtown and Black Road. At 
the place of intersection, Black Road is a gravel road but it quickly 
turns into a dirt two track. Walk 200 feet or so towards the water and 
the corn on your side will end allowing maximum viewing. The Godwit was 
hanging out with the Black-necked Stilts (I counted 91). Also present 
was about 1500 Pectoral Sandpipers, 7 Stilt Sandpipers, 2 Wilson's 
Phalaropes, and a Dowitcher I think is a Long-billed. The entire area is 
filled with good habitat. Hundreds of Great Egrets have been seen. From 
Mitchie Road to Kidd Lake, I counted 67 Little  Blue Herons.
