Wandering Tattler

Some Wandering Tattlers pass through Oregon during migration between nesting areas in the far north and wintering grounds on islands in the central and south Pacific. This one was resting this morning on rocks along the beach at Arch Cape in Clatsop County. It is still wearing mostly breeding plumage, but showing signs of beginning the molt to plainer winter plumage.
