For World Migratory Bird Day, we're looking at a flock of black-tailed godwits in the Netherlands. These shorebirds breed in parts of Europe and Russia, and then migrate to areas in Western Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. A large percentage of the godwit population breeds in the Netherlands, which is why the country voted to make it the national bird in 2015. It's also captured in paintings by Dutch artists Vermeer and Rembrandt, making the black-tailed godwit as 'Dutch as they come,' according to the Dutch newspaper Trouw.
