I spent a couple hours this morning at the Oyhut Wildlife Recreation Area at
Ocean Shores. Not huge numbers of birds but thoroughly enjoyable.
Highlights included:
- A Long-billed Dowitcher and a Short-billed Dowitcher feeding
side-by-side. See photos and video at the link below. I believe they are a
juvenile Long-billed and non-breeding Short-billed. I'll appreciate being
corrected/educated if anyone thinks otherwise.
- 1 Pectoral Sandpiper
- 2 Least Sandpipers
- 2 Western Sandpipers
- 18 Greater Yellowlegs
- 2 Semipalmated Plovers
- 1 Bonaparte's Gull
- at least 6 Killdeer
- both male and female Northern Harriers

Here's the link to the photos and videos on Flickr:
