(LINTON) - Bird watchers spotted five Hudsonian godwits at the Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area.
The bird is a rear shorebird species that's an even rarer visitor to the state's inland areas.

The bird spent a few days at a wetland-filled site, 35 miles southwest of Bloomington and then resumed their fall migration.

Hudsonian godwits are a large shorebird with a long, upturned bill which breed in the Arctic and winter in remote areas of southern South America.

They are considered rare visitors to the Lake Michigan shoreline during migration, but reports of them inland in Indiana are even more exceptional.
