It looks like the Sharp-tailed Sandpiper in Seattle is still being
seen today. Its favorite mudflat is east of Foster Island, viewed by
looking north from the SR-520 bike trail. Access is via walking or
biking down the trail from East Montlake Park.

Note that the SR-520 bridge will be closed to vehicles all weekend,
but the bike trail will still be open. In other words, it's a bad
weekend to try driving across the SR-520 bridge, but a great weekend
to go birding at this spot, which otherwise has a lot of noise and
vibration from all the highway vehicles passing by.

Good birding,
Dave Slager
