I heard an exciting report here in San Juan County yesterday, July 12th.
A couple friends and fellow bird-watchers were on a boat near Shark Reef
just off of Lopez Island where they saw a HORNED PUFFIN around 11:30 AM.
While watching the bird, a tufted puffin also flew into the area. Photos
have been posted on the San Juan Islands Audubon Facebook page. I only
know of one previous record of a horned puffin in the county from 1977.
Quite a find!
