Arrived at Brazoria yesterday afternoon to look for the Black-tailed Godwit. It 
wasn't present, but there were three Marbled Godwits, good numbers of 
Short-billed Dowitchers, and two Fulvous Whistling-Ducks. Had one flyover Wood 
Stork as we were getting in the car to leave. We spent the night in Angelton, 
and got up this morning and went back out there. Tony Frank and Stephan Lorenz 
were already out there, and after scanning the west field for a while there 
really weren't many new than the birds I saw yesterday evening (large increase 
in Avocet number, though) 
Stephan and I saw two Marbled Godwits in some water that's still standing 
behind the dry east field
When we got back to the car, 3 mottled ducks had arrived in the west field
Disappointed, but some good birds nonetheless
