Ballet in White and Black: Grays Harbor Shorebird Festival Professional Review and Guide
"Don’t miss the spectacular shorebird “ballet” at the annual Grays Harbor Shorebird Festival. Up to a million birds gather here to feed before migrating farther north. The numbers of shorebirds you will see here this time of year is mind-boggling. Thousands swoop and turn together, pirouetting in the air, a shorebird ballet in glistening white and black. They land to probe the mudflats ceaselessly and intently for tasty invertebrates. These birds are engaged in the serious occupation of feeding, storing fat, and resting up for their nonstop flight to northern breeding grounds."
