Breeding Record of Pacific Godwit

Among sets of eggs recently added to my collection there is one of the Pacific Godwit (Limosa lapponica baueri). It consists of three eggs collected by an Eskimo girl in July, 1928, on the Ashookto River about 100 miles southeast of Barrow, Alaska. The nest was on dry ground away from the water and was composed of dry root fibers and moss of reddish color. Both the male and female were snared at the nest and are now (nos. 42956-57) in the collection of Dr. Louis B. Bishop, Pasadena, California.
