>> Hi Tweets,
>> I checked out Twanoh SP in Mason County on my way to Union today and the 1st year Glaucous Gull is still present at the boat launch.
>> Good numbers of Surf Scoters, both Goldeneyes and Western Grebes in the general area, as well. The grebes tended to stay towards the north side just at the edge of scope range.
>> Yesterday I visited Fox Island on Pierce county and found good numbers of the above birds, plus Harlequin Ducks. I can't believe I still have yet to see a single White-winged (or less surprisingly Black) Scoter in Pierce this year. Also a flock of 350 Dunlin at the base of the bridge and a large flock of Bonaparte's Gulls - that are definitely worth a longer check with better lighting than I had.
>> Good Birding,
