Dreaming of being at Ocean Shores right now, I spent about an hour
shorebirding this morning on Vashon.
There was one juvenile BAIRD'S SANDPIPER in with about 20 each of WESTERN
and LEAST SANDPIPER. Also one juvenile SEMIPALMATED PLOVER, one SPOTTED
SANDPIPER and a handful of KILLDEER. I was there about 6:30 this morning and
you just can't beat checking out shorebirds with a brilliant sun directly at
your back. Scope is recommended. Showing up a couple hours before or after
high tide is probably best for this spot.
Not much, just 10+ KILLDEER and six SPOTTED SANDPIPERS. There was a molting
BONAPARTE'S GULL floating out in the channel.
