Dinner plans, title run set for Bulldogs

The ritual has become second nature for Montesano. The last weekend of May is set aside for the state softball tournament and has been since 1998. Directions to Columbia Playfields in Richland are probably still stuck in the GPS of a few parents, while others have had reservations at hotels in the area since before the Bulldogs secured a berth in the state field with a 6-1 district consolation final win over Hoquiam on Sunday.

Grays Harbor Birds — Western Sandpiper

If there is one bird that epitomizes the birds of Grays Harbor, the Western Sandpiper would be the one. This bird is the most abundant shorebird in Washington, seen on most beaches on the outer coast from July through May. They are lumped into a group of small shorebirds called peeps, which includes the Least and Semipalmated Sandpipers. Add the larger and paler Sanderlings and you have the most common birds seen running in front of the waves on the beach.
