Regarding an ebird county-year list alert (see fwd below):
Perhaps there were four Ruddy Turnstones and two Lesser Yellowlegs at The Cove in Seaside this evening. Earlier today I saw 33 BLACK TURNSTONES and 2 WANDERING TATTLERS on the boulders waiting out the high tide. Steve Warner had called me about them when he sighted them there this morning. I looked carefully st each turnstone for a Ruddy, but only found a couple Black Turnstones in finest full breeding plumage with white Mark's in the face and red legs. These more colorful and more patterned plumaged Black Turnstone individuals can and have been mistaken for Ruddy Turnstones by birders, and so be ware...
Lesser Yellowlegs would be unexpected at the cobble and boulder beach at The Cove, though certainly possible. I suspect though that they may have been the two Tattlers. This is all veery presumptuous of me and I will set my table for a dish of crow just in case...
Good birding. I hope I am wrong as both species would be year birds for me and they're cool birds!
