Hello fellow Washington birders,

Beginning this Sunday what is being deemed the most intense offshore storm in our recorded history is coming to our coast.

There is information on this storm here: https://cliffmass.blogspot.com/?m=1

Windy.com is a great place to keep an eye on it as well.

It seems that Sunday-Wednesday (10/24 - 10/27) is the bulk of the strong winds pushing to the coast. This would be a fantastic time to find rarities that are blown in from this.

One can only imagine the loads of megas that will be dropped to Neah Bay from this, but of course, the Makah reservation is still closed off. I’m hoping to encourage people to get out looking in other places.

Really anywhere along the coast could be worth checking. Pacific county is underbirded and has lots of potential, especially spots like the town of Ilwaco, Bay Center, and Cape Disappointment. Ocean Shores and Wesport-Tokeland would be good to check too.

For the most Neah Bay-like potential, Clallam Bay and other spots along the Straight could be productive. Access is available all the way to Snow Creek, just a few miles from the town of Neah Bay. La Push is another potentially good spot.

Hoping to have as many eyes as possible out looking considering a wind event like this during this time of year has incredible potential.

See you out there!
