Hi, all,

Mid-day today, the flock at Harbor Point (West Seattle) had at least 20
Surfbirds and a couple Black Turnstones, one of the latter wearing a
metal and a color band (yellow). I reported it to the federal banding
lab., but someone with decent photography equipment could probably get
the actual band number with a little patience. The birds were close
(high tide) -- one of each sp. actually foraged up on the lawn when
waves pushed. Also: a couple Common Murres, Rhinoceros Auklet/s,
Common Loon/s, one White-winged Scoter, all three cormorants, and around
south of the point, a couple more turnstones and a few Harlequin Ducks.
