I was out also. In addition to the juvie RED KNOT there were three RUDDY TURNSTONES (two adults and one juvie) and one WANDERING TATTLER plus 110+ Black Turnstones.
The birds then all flew over to the base of the south jetty where Don, Robyn and I had great looks at them except for the knot which must stick to the north jetty. Also on south jetty were over 100 Least Sandpipers, at least two Western Sands, 19 oystercatchers, and a couple Killdeer.
Fun times with close up looks at shorebirds! Great find by Don and Robyn. Weird to see a knot hanging out on the jetty?
Happy shorebirding! Tim Rodenkirk headed back to Coos Bay
