This is a slightly late report for Friday, May 20th about noon. I stopped
at the Hoquiam Sewage Ponds and found a "ballet troupe" of 10 Red-necked
Phalaropes "dancing" in the corner closest to the road at the middle pond.
Fun to watch! It reminded me of years ago birding on Alaskan tundra and
hearing a "plop" in the water behind me, only to find another phalarope had
dropped in. Of course they were still Northern Phalaropes then!
Otherwise shorebird migration seems to be about over. I did not find a
single shorebird on the beach in Ocean Shores and the three Brant also
seemed a bit late!

Good Birding!
