Hi tweets
Today I discovered 3 of these on the mini spit about 150 yards from our house.
There was a huge flock of black bellied plovers who were spoked from the main
Spit earlier by some people.Some retreated to the closer spit.
Pictures of the golden state were taken.There was 1 adult and 2 juveniles .
These will be on ebird later today.
Dennis Paulson kindly examined the pictures and confirmed at least 1 juvenile
To be an American golden plover. Photo was inadequate for ID of the adult.
THIS IS A DEFNITE high count for golden plovers at Tulalip. On September 17,
2015 there were 2 American golden plovers for a previous high count.
Cheers and good birding,
Maxine Reid
Ps,2 red knots on the spit yesterday
