Hi - Any guesses on the identity of a large flock of shorebirds -- perhaps 200 -- on the rock breakwater outside Shilshole Marina? Henry Noble and I saw them from the Daybreak Star Center lookout yesterday. But they were so far that even with the scope we could only see that they had dark backs and white fronts that flashed when they flew back and forth in a tight formation, then landed again on the rocks. There was nothing to give us a sense of size. Helen GilbertSeattle
