Adding to Ruth Sullivan's report:

Along the beach at Ocean Shores on Saturday (7/31) before noon there were about 825 Semipalmated Plovers and an equal number of Sanderling. Most of the sanderling were in worn adult breeding plumage with a few fresher looking white and gray young birds.

On Sunday afternoon (8/1) 310 Marbled Godwits were perched along the riprap at the marina .

A real treat was one juvenal Red-necked Phalarope paddling around the north end of the Bell Canal.

CAUTION: Do Not drive on the beach south of the Taurus Rd. access. The sand is very soft. This is the first access point north of the Point Brown Jetty area.
