Hi Tweets,

This afternoon, there was a Leach's Storm-Petrel flying far out in the
Sound off Discovery Park. It disappeared into the fog and rain,
apparently headed north-northeast.

The numbers of Ancient Murrelets were impressive, with at least 32
birds, plus another 11 murrelets that were probably Ancient.

Also in the park was a single Common Redpoll, presumably the same bird
seen by Jordan Gunn yesterday. We heard it several times, flying
around near the Utah wetland and Capehart area, but never got a good
look at it.

Despite the mixed weather, it was a great day to be out!

Good birding,
Matt Dufort
