Headed out to woods but stopped along Hwy 42 to take a quick look at a huge shorebird accumulation. With the late rains Winter Lake (near Coquille) is like a huge mudflat. There are shorebird flocks (Westerns mostly I would guess) everywhere. Tens of thousands- the most I have ever seen in Coos County! The numbers are staggering!!!!!
Several Eagles and at least one Peregrine are moving the birds- this is an area bigger than Bandon Marsh with birds moving everywhere.
