Interesting in that on Sunday between about 11:30 am and 12:45 pm I birded the same area during on almost all of the open beach that was accessible.  The tide was very low and there were lots of people but the ONLY shorebirds on the open beach were about 50+ Semipalmated Plovers, 15 Sanderling and 3 Western Sandpipers. All in a single foraging flock 50+ yards from the waters edge.

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.
