On a combined razor clamming and birding trip to Ocean Shores we were pleased with both activities.
At one spot behind the Best Western Inn there were

Sanderling - 400
Dunlin - 1000's - they stayed most of the day leaving in huge ribbons toward evening/high tide, they appeared as far as we could see/drive up/down the beach.
Marbled Godwits - 100's
Semipalmated Plovers - 6
Black-bellied Plovers - 3
Western Sandpipers - 100's
Short-billed Dowitchers 100's

These were in huge mixed flocks busy feeding.

Razor clammers - 100's

This should be a good weekend for the Gray's Harbor Bird Fest in Hoquiam Wa.
