I haven’t seen a tattler this year since I haven’t really birded in Coos
since early July. Didn’t see one today- oh well, did see the following:
Bandon very high tide so all shorebirds along south jetty:
13- Marbled Godwits
15- Black Oystercatcher (including observations from Coquille Point as well
as south jetty)
2- SB Dowitchers (juvies- easy ID)
1- LB Dowitcher (also juvie with flock- easy ID when I got closer)
85- BirdBlack Turnstone
Also 2 Merlin and a couple Caspian Tern.
No tattler and to early for Rock Sandpiper.
No Black Scoter as recently reported on eBird (grrrr so many questionable
reports!) but many Surf Scoters in all sorts of funky molting plumages.
