When it leaves the prairies, the marbled godwit goes into coastal areas and becomes quite greens. The large shakes roast together at the salt pier at high peaks. Marble deities are found all over the United States from the Gulf of Mexico to Alaska during the winter months.

Their breeding habitat is the northern prairies of western Canada (Canadian prairies), and the North American Great Plains of the United States near the lake or reservoir. They are usually short on nests on the ground

In the autumn they flee the shores of California, the Gulf of Mexico, Mexico, and the southern United States.

These birds are explored in landfills, wetlands, or on the beach below (see image below). When the tide comes out, they eat. In the short grass they can pick insects to see. They mainly eat insects and crustaceans but also eat parts of aquatic plants.

Tide, they sink when they arrive. They often stand on one leg and fall asleep touching the bill on their body (see image below).

By the end of the nineteenth century, their numbers were reduced by hunting. Although they have recovered somewhat since then, their population has declined in recent times as suitable housing is used for farming.

A large shorebird common in northern prairie breeding fields and in winter in southern California and western Mexico, marbled godwit is 18 inches tall. It has gray, black and brown feathers on the upper part and a light color on the bottom. The Marble Godwit is large noisy birds with somewhat build bills.
