Hello tweeters.
This afternoon on a late tide ,there where very few Shorebirds most all
Black-bellied Plovers and few Dowitchers
THIS IS IN CASE THE GROUP OF NICE BIRDERS FROM THE Portland AUDUBON seeing
this Message,Igor and I found THE B AR-TAILED GODWIT WITH A GROUP OF 500
Marbled GOTWIT'S on the Westport Marina on the jetty.A tip from the birders
in Chehalis there told us that the Purple Martin feeding babies by both
male &female.We went and sure enough both parents taken turns feeding the
young.I was not able to get a photo of this birds from the opposite site of
the marina looking direct on to the front of the house.No one this year
reported some action of this birds .Earlier this spring I SAW I MALE sitting
on the house.This is quite rare seeing Martin nesting on the Ocean.The pole
where we put the second house where taken down
with the large rubber where this bird nested before.


Cheers Ruth Sullivan
