If I could talk to birds — and if they'd listen — I'd like to tell them that when nesting, silence is best. I don't know you're there, I'd say, until you rise up and ululate at me.
And so, Marbled Godwit, let it be known that your high-pitched trills and lamentations told me that your nest was near. But I'd also like to say, I didn't leave the road to take these pictures.

(I feel partial to Godwits, because I saw them in estuaries in Ireland. Not this species, though...)
