Hi Tweets! Late this morning I wrested myself from a napping granddaughter in West Seattle and drove down the hill to the parks on the south side of Alki Pt. to search for the Ruddy Turnstones that have been there for a couple of weeks now. When I got to the Charles Richards view point, I quickly found a Black Turnstone on the reef offshore to the south. Went back to the car for the scope, and while walking the beach back to the south, found my first B. As in Bill Boynton. We joined forces (as we birders often do) and quickly found two Ruddy Turnstones, along with the Black and several Harlequin Ducks. Then, I got my second B as Blair Bernson (and I thought he was in Canada chasing a Stint) showed up to get the confirming photo. We then meandered about looking for the Lark Sparrow, but no luck there. We then joined some other birders who had gotten scopes on a hugely distant Parasitic Jaeger. A nice second FOY for me. Then - had to get back up the hill before the babe woke up. Happy (serendipitous) birding! - Jon Houghton, Edmonds
