Highlights: Parasitic Jaeger, Sabine's Gull, RED PHALAROPE.

WEATHER: A pleasant day at the tip. Cool, and partly sunny with light northeast winds.

WATERFOWL:Extremely slow with very low numbers. 3 Surf Scoters, and 35 WW Scoters where the only ducks of intrest.

SHOREBIRDS: 1 Am. Golden-Plover, 8 Sanderlings, and 1 RED PHALAROPE, that spent over two hours feeding just off the tip!

JAEGERS, GULLS: The juvenile Parasitic Jaeger was present again, and spent much of the day harassing the gulls and resting offshore of the tip. A juvenile Sabine's Gull spent about 2 hours feeding around the tip, and landed briefly on the tip! The 1st winter GBB Gull was present today as well.

The forecast for tomorrow is calling for some sun, and Southest winds!

Good Birding,
