[Tweeters] BTGO at Tokeland

I had "front seat" views of a lovely Bar-tailed Godwit at Tokeland
yesterday afternoon (11 Sept) between 2:30 and 4:20 p.m. It was
foraging/resting with 45 MAGOs and 12 Willets on the S side of Kindred
Avenue across from Nelson's Crab. I have posted photos with my ebird

ebird checklist 594536538 ( https://ebird.org/checklist/S94536538 )

Incoming tide had pushed the shorebirds up close to the base of the
embankment where I sat on one of the flatter rocks to observe and count the
BRPEs that were coming to roost on and around the remains of the old pier
(fall Oregon Audubon BRPE Survey). BTW, there were also good numbers of
BRPEs on the rocky bar island off the NE side of the boat basin.

Would be interesting to know if anyone saw BTGOs at the Westport Marina at
the same time I observed this one at Tokeland. Was it one of the two
reported by Paulson on 9 Sept, or yet another individual? Hummmh!
