Just getting back from from a week of fishing sablefish off the Wa coast from Cape Disappointment to Cape Flattery. And seeing the post about spaces for this weekends wesport pelagic I thought I’d post the notable birds I saw.Lots of the regulars and although I wasn’t able to get any time to scan with my binocs I did get good looks at 3 species of albatross. A Short- tailed fly by on the 28th of Sept. off Cape Elizabeth ( not far from Grays canyon as an Albatross flys)
The dark juvenile bird did a couple close loops past the boat but never landed where I could see it.There was a fleet of whiting trawlers moving south towards Grays canyon with a lot of birds. A Laysan flew by yesterday off Cape Flattery and of course always lots of Black- footed Albatross about.
A Flesh- footed Shearwater flew close as well as a couple Buller ‘s both off Cape Flattery along with a lot of Pink-footed and Sootys. Plenty of Auklets and Murrelets.
A couple Yellow-rumped warblers and a juvenile White-crowned sparrow stopped to rest. Lots of birds out there.
