Hi tweets.
Today the 3 marbled godwits remain. First seen Oct.17.
They are in a large mixed flock so shorebirds at high tide this am,8:30.
Others incl.large number of black bellied plovers, dunlins, about a dozen sanderlings,
2 western sandpipers .
Also 5 killdeers at the east end of the bay.
There are small numbers of American wigeons, common mergansers,horned grebes amongst all
The usual resident water birds.
At higher tides(more than 8 feet) you can frequently see the shorebirds at the end of the spit from the south side of the bay along mission beach road.
Dairiki tide guide for Everett is quite accurate for tulalip.

Cheers, Maxine Reid
