Black tailed godwits (Limosa limosa) display a black tail when they fly. There are three subspecies, all with orange head, neck and chest in breeding plumage and dull grey-brown winter coloration, and distinctive black and white wingbar at all times. Female black-tailed godwits are bigger and heavier than the males, with a noticeably longer beak. The breeding range stretches from Iceland through Europe and areas of central Asia. Bar-tailed godwits don't have striped wings.
