Tweeters -

The morning fog has cleared and now seeing the Sooty's going in both directions in huge numbers!! Will miss watching this amazing phenomenon. It looks like bats coming out of a cave - birds everywhere. Now it looks as if a huge mass of them have settled down on the water. And now just nearly a black wall of birds in constant motion.

Glad to have seen a few peeps last evening. Oysterville/Nachotta had many Blue Herons and a few peeps. The Beach Loop at Ledbetter Pt. (did not have our scope sadly) had heron, a few peeps and a huge flotilla of "ducks" (unidentified) - any idea what they might have been??

The Sooty's were such a great show. The "shear" numbers were as satisfying as seeing a hundred species (well, almost).

Looking forward to seeing my hummers and towhees, etc.

Thanks again to all who gave me information on this most interesting species!! Near and far...;-)
