Today, I stopped by the Port of Alsea in Waldport during the king tide then drove around the north side of the bay and apparently right past the ruff along N. Bayview Road. I then along South Beaver Creek Road. The only note worthy observation I made was 18 killdeer roosting around a puddle in a pasture.
In Seal Rock I went down on the beach at the south highway overlook and got close to some accommodating shorebirds foraging on the intertidal rocks. Birds present included 6 black oystercatchers, 32 surf birds, 14 black turnstones, 2 rock sandpipers, and 12 sanderlings. The sanderlings joined the rockpipers on the rocks but mostly stayed on the flat algae covered rocks.
