Hi Tweets,

Heather and I had some good shorebirds the last couple evenings at Ediz Hook in Port Angeles. Majority roosting on the log booms, including:

BB Plover - one male still in full breeding plumage
Red Knot
Black Turnstone
black Oystercatcher
Least & Western Sandpiper

At 4:30 pm with an incoming tide nearing high, we found an adult (female?) Pacific Golden-Plover. See EBird checklist for pictures. Wings were about same length as tail, nice golden spangled and 1/3 of black feathers on breast still present.


Bird was about 1/2 way down the hook in the area of the Large white Beach Restoration Phase 3 sign on inner bay side.
