Hi birders,

I was at Shoalhaven Heads this morning, looking at the waders on a beautiful
sunny morning. There was a large group of bar-tailed godwit, but I also saw
what I think may be black-tailed godwit as well. I'm hoping that someone can
help me confirm this as waders always confuse me a bit. This bird had a
definite pink base to the bill, with a black tip, while the other birds had
a duller greyish base to the bill. According to my Pizzey and Knight, this
would make it the black-tailed. Anyone able to help me out?
