My little bight of Willapa Bay (south of Nahcotta) has been remarkably consistent over the past two weeks or so. The bight has mud uncovered before the areas nearby. Now on the dropping tide:

1 Short-billed Dowitcher (it shows up most days)
35 Black-bellied Plovers
800 Dunlin
45 Least Sandpipers
8 Greater Yellowlegs
55 Killdeer
9 Semi-plamated Plovers

A White -throated Sparrow had spent a few days at the feeder recently, but has not been seen in a two days.

Unfortuante road kills on Highway 101: a River Otter and a Barn Owl.
