Historical Text

Limosa fedoa (Linnaeus)
Marbled Godwit

Gibbs (1879: 492) reported that this species was "taken occasionally ... along the edges of the great lakes." It was also listed for Michigan by various other authors (Barrows, 1912: 190; Sager, 1839: 416). There are, however, but 3 definite records: 2 (U.M.M.Z.) taken on the Detroit River, Wayne County, August 1, 1882, by H. E. Chubb; 2 (U.M.M.Z.) collected in the Erie marsh, Monroe County, 1 on September 9,1934, by Trautman, and 1 on August 13, 1938, by L. W. Campbell (1940: 81-82).
