Noonish to about 2 pm, the birds were showing in the dune grasses and on the beach in an area mostly just north of the Sunset access point. They did get up and fly about, sometimes leaving and flying out of sight but returning a bit later to the general area. We had some prolonged looks but none were close. Although photographs were being taken, I do not know whether anyone got anything better than what has been shared to date. About 10 of us enjoyed watching them foraging and flocking in the area.
Rock Sandpiper was with Surfbirds and Black Turnstones at The Cove from 2:30 to 3 pm. Thanks to Steve Warner for pointing to them the other day.
Others may chime in. We were 5 birders from central Oregon, other Oregonians and one from Idaho. Good birding, Judy Meredith, <jmeredit...>
