Numbers of WHIMBRELS and MARBLED GODWITS continue to build. There was a single flock of 63 godwits Tuesday, but only 20 or so today.
But the real action is on the beach. I spent nearly an hour this afternoon surveying the beaches from Del Rey to Peter Iredale. Tremendous numbers of SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHERS flying by (final count was 531). Also season first SEMIPALMATED PLOVER, RED KNOT and BONAPARTE'S GULL.
