G'day folks,
                 Had a nice flock of 6 Black-tailed Godwits at the sewage
ponds in Alice on Tuesday including one bird in quite spectacular plumage.
I've stuck some pictures up on the Birds Central blog if anyone would care
for a gander.

Is this common for migratory birds to be getting close to full breeding
plumage before departure?
