>> Subject: A few interesting "beach birds" at Tulalip/mission beach .
>> Today on a short beach walk east from the beach access on mission beach road.
>> We discovered a plethora of thrushes.
>> There were at least a dozen varied thrush and about 5-6 hermit thrush.
>> When it gets really cold I notice the varied seem to move to the lowlands ,feeders, etc.
>> Hermit thrush I have seen rarely along the same stretch of beach but only single birds
>> Less than annually.
>> This week has brought a pair of spotted sandpipers to our dock on inner tulalip bay.
>> As well about 7 w. Snipes are feeding just above the shoreline 50 yards from our house.
>> At the tribal center there is a large ball play field.there is a single greater white fronted goose with myriad Canada geese.
>> At the south end of the play field in tire ruts ,there are variable numbers of w. Snipes.
>> (They seem to move,temperature dependent, between the shoreline by our house and the play field).
>> At the spillway of battle creek just north of the tribal center are thousands of spawning salmon. Hence about a dozen bald eagles are nearby,
>> In the bay are large numbers of wigeons, only 1 eurasian sighted so far this year,mallards,both goldeneyes,buffleheads, surf scoters, a few common mergansers,
>> Green wing teals.
>> A few dunlins ,BBplovers ,a single black turnstone also present.
>> Good birding,
