"Wireless Road and Clatsop Spit, Astoria, Oregon ... May 2, 2012"
The Trip:    Overcast and rainy with a front coming in ... however went to see if the Long-billed Curlew was still along Wireless Road in Astoria, as it's been seen there for the past couple of days ... SUCCESS !!! ... he was far across the field but had good looks through the scope ... in between rain showers we then went to the end of the road at Fort Stevens to see what the shorebird activity was at Clatsop Spit (Trestle Bay or along that section of the Pacific Ocean) ... tide was still in ... had nice views however of a breeding-plumage Common Loon.
