SPECTACULAR ~ : Each spring, hundreds of thousands of shorebirds migrating from as far south as Argentina, stop to rest and feed for about 3 weeks in the estuaries of Grays Harbor, Washington during their long flight to Arctic breeding grounds.

Departing, often suddenly in great masses and fantastic flight displays, the flocks offer viewers an extraordinary opportunity to see the various species of shorebirds.
