Hi Tweeters,

After stopping by to see the WHITE-TAILED KITE on Willow Grove Rd on the
west side of Longview (CowlitzCounty) this morning (thanks Russ K and Max
R.), I headed out to Long Beach peninsula (Pacific County) to look for the
Bar-tailed Godwit that I had missed ten days ago. Within two minutes of my
arrival at the end of 275th Street in Nahcotta, I found the flock of
Marbled Godwits which held one BAR-TAILED GODWIT. Glad that it only took
two minutes since I spent 5 hours ten days ago without success. While
scanning the remainder of the ~200 godwits, I was surprised to see another
Bar-tailed Godwit. I immediately rescanned to make sure the first one
hadn't done a quick reposition. 2nd bird confirmed when both of them were
in the same field of view! The other surprise was a late OSPREY
flying over with an immature Bald Eagle.

I didn't see any Rock Sandpipers or Red Phalaropes.

Keep your eyes and ears - pointed to where the birds are....
