The Marbled Godwit (Limosa fedoa) is a large shorebird with a very long, slightly up-curved bill. They are part of a large family of shorebirds including sandpipers, snipes, whimbrels, phalaropes, yellowlegs, woodcocks, and dowitchers, but differ from most shorebirds in having a prairie breeding range (southern portions of Canadian prairie provinces and the north-central United States) and short migrations. Marbled Godwits weigh between 285 and 450 g, are mottled brown with long legs, and use their long, slightly upcurved bill to feed on aquatic invertebrates and terrestrial insects during breeding and plant tubers during migration.
