We had a really nice excursion to the North Jetty today, leaving Seattle at
5:30 and arriving at the jetty a little before 8. I had a Wilson's warbler
and a golden-crowned sparrow on the jetty rocks, and it just got better
from there. Saw ruddy turnstones (skedaddled before I could get the camera
out), black turnstones, pacific loons (in the water, scope views only),
surfbirds, and a first for me: a wandering tattler. There were also
flotillas of surf scoters and western grebes, and lots of mammals of
various sorts.

A few photos are here:

Just the first 8 pics in the set are from today's adventure.

We stopped by Bowerman Basin on the way home, even though the tide was a
few hours past high. The highlight was the most impossibly yellow
goldfinch I've ever seen. It was just blazing. Common, maybe, but what a
cool bird.

Happy birding,
Warren
