Yesterday (7.13.19) there were 36 dowitchers off of the Swinomish Channel, accessed from Channel Drive. They were not all LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS. In the video below, a SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHER takes center stage, shows off its white belly & then displays a very short bill.

Later, Gary Bletsch and I visited Hayton Reserve. In his previous post Gary mentioned that we were fortunate to observe both a MARBLED GODWIT and a BAR-TAILED GODWIT.

It was a good day.
