Hi Tweeters,

Bird bio mass has hit Ocean Shores!

Along the outer beach from the casino northward had an estimated 25k
shorebirds which were 99.9% Semipalmated Plovers and Western Sandpipers.
Had one Semipalmated Sandpiper and noted about 75 juvie Westerns. Ebird
checklist here:

This morning, Point Brown Jetty was hopping! In one hour had about 35,000
birds pass by. Most species counted by number passing per minute
multiplied by number of observation minutes. Ebird checklist:

Keeping my eyes and ears skyward.
