Could you please give us more specific directions on how to find this bird?
I may try to find it in the next few days. Would it be correct to presume
that this area can only be accessed safely at low tide?

Subject: [Tweeters] Rock Wren continues on Whidbey

While doing our COASST survey yesterday on Sunset Beach (north Whidbey, off
West Beach Road west of Oak Harbor), we once again saw the Rock Wren. We saw
it at the same spot on November 20 and February 11. This beach really gets
blasted on windy days, so it's one tough little bird! The area where it
hangs out has quite a jumble of logs and fallen chunks of bluff. Also of
note were two Eared Grebes, which we rarely see here.

Haven't been down to the Shore Beach Rd/Mutiny Bay area to see if that Rock
Wren is still around.
