Those places are really good spots. If you want a closer one that wouldn’t quite be so dependable, you might try the Tramp Harbor fishing pier on Vashon Island where the Yellow-billed Loon is showing up. One to two Long-tailed Ducks have been hanging out for the last two weeks. Yesterday one was diving about 10 meters out and wasn’t bothered by a dock full of birdwatchers and fishermen. Both birds have been regular lately but also could leave at any time.

Reading past messages it looks like Blaine Marina and Semiahoo Spit are the best bets for viewing Long Tailed Ducks.

Is that generally the case, or could someone suggest any other spots? Planning a day trip from Seattle.
