Rock Wren, seen clearly today, 2/11 at 1pm and observed bobbing and tail flicking characteristic of this species. The bird was working the sand cliffs and small sand caves at a point 100 yards east of Double Bluff Point. This is the point with the navigation beacon at the intersection of Useless Bay and Admiralty Inlet. It is a two mile beach walk from the parking lot at Double Bluff County Park and best accessed at a falling mid tide to low tide.
There was also a restless flock of 1000 Dunlin, Sanderlings and Black-bellied Plovers resting on the rocks at the point.
