Hi all, if anyone is interested in joining us on the MV Vashona, a very
comfortable boat of Mosquito fleet vintage, we could use the help of someone
who would like to bird and take down the numbers as spotters call out
species and numbers. This would be for this coming Sunday the 31st from
about 8:30am to 1pm. You would have to catch the 7:35 ferry from
Fauntleroy, the 7:35 ferry from Pt. Defiance or the 7:40 ferry from
Southworth. It would be possible to carpool with me, I'll be catching the
Fauntleroy boat. I'll be staying to cover a land based territory in the
afternoon where more help is welcome or one could return on an afternoon
ferry to the mainland.
We generally see 45-55 species including three loon, four grebe, three
cormorant and several waterfowl, shorebird, alcid, gull and raptor species
in the Quartermaster Harbor section of the count. We'll definitely see
Eared Grebes and probably Black Scoters for those working on their King Co.
list. The land area I'll cover will get a good sparrow selection, Eurasian
Collared-Doves and hopefully two or three warbler species.
