>> Hi Tweets,

>> Back up to Warm Beach again with all the relatives and checking out the mouth of the Stillaguamish/Hatt Slough Estuary on the incoming tide. There is a narrow window of time when they stack up on the sand bars of the estuary before the tide pushes them off to driftwood throughout the bay. This evening I hit it at 5:30 pm and had quite the collection:

>>

>> 198 BB Plovers - most still in breeding plumage

>> 67 Greater & 1 LESSER Yellowlegs

>> 16 LB Dowitcher

>> 7 Least Sandpiper

>> 3 RUDDY TURNSTONE - one still in bright ruddy plumage.

>>

>> Closest public boat access point is on Marine View drive, just south of Stanwood

>>

>> Check on eBird for full list and map location.

>>

>> Good birding,
