On 27 April, Rick Welle stopped at Swallows Park on his way out of town enroute to Portland and a family trip to Florida.
He observed a nice variety of shorebirds on the mud/sand bar at the park marina.
One was a large plain, gray shorebird that revealed itself when it stretched its wings and later flew.
The distinctive black and white wing pattern of a WILLET.
Rick is an experienced birder who grow up in the Portland area.

It may be noteable that Willet has been observed in the Yakima/Walla Walla areas this Spring.
