Bottle Beach, Washington

On the seventh after visiting Westport, we stopped at Bottle Beach again about an hour and a half before high tide to see what kind of shorebirds would come in. There is a parking lot, washroom and lovely boardwalk to the beach at Bottle Beach.

We saw a few Wilson’s Warblers in the shrubs on the way.

Skipper Butterflies were seen at the edges of the walkway.

When we got to the beach, you could see Gray's Harbor and the fog bank hanging over Ocean Shores.

We waited and soon tiny Sandpipers and Semipalmated Plovers appeared.

Then a very large flock of Black-bellied Plovers arrived with some Dowitchers and a couple of Ruddy Turnstones mixed in.

It is a very enjoyable place to visit. Best time is about an hour and a half before or after high tide.
