Newport to Florence, OR (09/10/09)

This has to be among my 3 all-time favorite birds: 4 Buff-breasted Sandpipers were on the deflation plain at the South Jetty near Florence. Appreciate them when you see them, there aren’t many. The world population is estimated anywhere between 10-15,000 birds.

I was surprised that the Hudsonian Godwit at the Newport Marine Center was still present at high tide early in the day.

Late in the day I missed the reported Sharp-tailed Sandpiper at Basket Slough NWR.

Overall another great day.
