Large Shorebird - WA Nov 2023


Recommended Posts

November 23, 2023 - Bottle Beach State Park in WA, along Grays Harbor which is an estuary bay.

The shorebirds come in just after high tide in the 1000s. In the last couple of years there has been a Willet residing along several hundred Marbled Godwits that move mostly between here and the Westport Marina. In Nov 2023 there was also a Red Knot in non-breeding plumage. It looks like most reports of Red Knot at this location are in spring and in breeding plumage.

I thought they were both the Willet, and the Willet is rare and previously reviewed and cleared. However, I seem to be incorrect about one or both birds. The Red Knot would be rare as well. Maybe I'm missing another options, but opinions are appreciated as always.

Thank you,
