Bill's Spit Professional Review and Guide
"Bill’s Spit is one of those small birding spots that can be gold when the timing is right and leave you shaking your head when the timing is wrong. As with many of the birding sites on the inner Grays Harbor during the migration season, if you watch the birds in the two hours before or the two hours after the high tide you are in for a treat. But show up at low tide and you will see little more than tiny dots on the sand that might be birds hundreds of yards from the spit. Habitats: Sandy beach, salt marsh. Specialty birds: Common Loon; Brown Pelican; Pelagic and Brandt’s Cormorants; Bald Eagle; Peregrine Falcon; Black-bellied Plover; Willet; Long-billed Curlew; Marbled Godwit; Red Knot; Baird’s and Pectoral Sandpipers; Short-billed Dowitcher; Red-necked Phalarope; Heerman’s, Bonaparte’s, Mew, and Western Gulls; Common Murre; Pigeon Guillemot; Marbled Murrelet; Rhinoceros Auklet; Vaux’s Swift; Rufous Hummingbird."
