The Grays Harbor Shorebird and Nature Festival, April 25-27, 2014 is a photographer’s dream and a great opportunity to see the food web in action as resident Peregrine Falcons dive into the flocks for their meal. The number of species present is also amazing, and includes such uncommon birds as Red Knots, Whimbrels, Wandering Tattlers, as well as thousands and thousands of Dunlin and Western Sandpipers. You will also see Black-bellied Plovers, Snowy Plovers, Spotted Sandpiper, Semiplamated Plover, Marbled Godwit, Sanderling, Least Sandpiper, Dunlin, and Short-billed and Long-billed Dowitchers! Pacific Golden Plover, Willet, Pectoral Sandpiper, Solitary Sandpipers, and Baird’s Sandpiper,
In addition to the great shorebird viewing at the refuge, join us for many outstanding fieldtrips to other coastal habitats. From rocky headlands through rainforest and open ocean, to gentle surf and sandy beach, you are sure to enjoy seeing a wide variety of birds. Maybe even add to your life list! Each of the fieldtrips will be led by one of the region’s most capable birders!
