Locals and those who have participated in field trips down here know that Wandering Tattlers are a guaranteed sighting daily at high tide behind the Coast Guard building in Bandon at what we call the High Tide roost. If you need it for your life or county list and you happen to be in the area, check you tide charts and come on over. My office is in the building in Suite 2G if you need some help. Normally we go there as part of the Oregon Shorebird Festival which has been cancelled this year.

Robyn and I have seen a couple of Wandering Tatlers in the past few days. On Friday 2 were present on the rocks below the Cape Arago lookout at low tide. On Saturday 4 were in the Bandon area. Two of those were on the old pier behind the Coast Guard building in Old Town. The other two were seen on the rocks on the east end of the south jetty. The Bandon sightings were near high tide.
We have been seeing good flights of Brown Pelicans and a few Heermann's Gulls moving north but not much else moving along the coast yet.
At Cape Arago there were a number of "pairs" of Common Murre adult and young moving slowly north on the water, presumably dad and kid. Interestingly, we have not detected any young on the Bandon rocks yet. It has been quite windy the last few times we have been in Bandon making it difficult to scope those rocks.
