Based on the data from Broome, the Great Knots are probably two or maybe 
three years old.  The Bar-tailed Godwits are three years old or less.  The 
Broome data suggests that Great Knots stay south for two years, and Bar-
tailed Godwits for three years.  It will be interesting to see if they 
stay for the next few months.
