Hi Tweets,

It was a shorebird bonanza at Eide Road this evening, with 2 Whimbrel as the appetizer roosting bear the full flock. We arrived about an hour before Stanwood low tide and we were in place near the end of the levee as the tide crept in and a nice mixed flock came in of:

12 Baird’s Sandpipers
21 Semipalmated Sandpiper
12 Least Sandpiper
1 Western Sandpiper
2 juvenile Sanderling

We then walked out on the old dike until we met the tide and had 2 make Yellow-headed Blackbirds in the dead trees.

On the way back before the side pools were filled we had:
6 Pectoral Sandpiper
1 SB Dowitcher
and more Least Sandpipers.

And we finished the day at Warm Beach on the Stillaguamish Estuary with
400 Western Sandpipers
80 Black-bellied splicers
10 Greater Yellowlegs

A lovely day of Shorebirds!
