October 3, 2008

WEATHER: Cool, and partly sunny with strong NW winds.

WATERFOWL:Pretty slow, highlights were all three Scoter species, and a breeding plumaged PACIFIC LOON that flew past the point in the late morning.

SHOREBIRDS: 16 Sanderlings spent most of the day mulling around the tip.

JAEGERS, GULLS: A juvenile Parasitic Jaeger buzzed the point a few times in the afternoon. A juvenile Little Gull flew past in the 3rd hour, in 5th hour it reappeared at the tip and spent a half hour flying around the tip and resting on and offshore.

The forecast for tomorrow is calling for lite north winds and sun.

Good Birding,
