Did the CBC Jetty Island walk today and found over 1000 Dunlin, 80 Black-bellied Plover, and 4 Semi-palmated Plover on the west shore of the island and in the lagoon. Star of the day, though, was the American Avocet seen twice (or 2 birds?!), once on the west side directly opposite the boat dock, and a half hour later on the north tip of the berm. I believe it's been over 2 weeks since the last sighting (along the channel) so it may just be hanging out (with the gulls, not the shorebirds!) on the west side. - Happy Birdy New Year! - Jon Houghton, Edmonds
