An uncommon shorebird was unexpectedly spotted in the middle of Great Sippewissett Marsh a few days ago. With the breeding season over, the fall migration is now underway. Many migrant shorebirds can be found along Falmouth beaches and marshes. The Marbled Godwit is a rare visitor in Falmouth. The Marbled Godwit is beautiful buff colored shorebird with barring on its flanks, a long slightly upturned bill and long dark legs.
