> While visiting Sandy Point, Ferndale, Washington, on Wed, 9-18, I found two Lapland Longspurs.

> They were foraging for seeds in the grasses near the beach. Photos can be found through the links below.

> Also seen were about 25 Black Turnstones, about 20 Western Sandpipers, one Least Sandpiper, and other birds.

> A juvenile Peregrine Falcon appeared and engaged in an extended chase of a BLTU. The pursuit eventually went out of sight, so I don?t know if the Falcon had a shorebird breakfast or not.

>

> There were also two kids {12 year olds ?} on an ATV without helmets or adult supervision. They were racing around the parking area and streets nearby.

> When they came motoring onto the grassy cape, I asked that they please turn around as motor vehicles were not allowed on the cape. They begrudgingly returned to the streets.

> Pretty sure they may have returned to trashing the cape after I left. ?Just having fun !?

>

> Sandy Point {currently owned by a bank} should be protected.

> I haven't been much recently, but had occasion to visit the Edmonds marina yesterday afternoon. If you like your Heermann's Gulls up close and personal, you may want to go soon. Instead of roosting at the far southern end of the breakwater as in past years, hundreds are roosting on the rocks on both sides of the walkway at the north end. Non-birders were stopping to watch them (!). I knew something was different when I saw the rocks stained white as I walked out. It was all tropical-Pacific-island-like. Other than that, one passing loon, a few Alcids and Surf Scoters, distant porpoise and closer seals.

> I don't post often or do much eBird listing, but I thought I'd share my observations of fall returnees to my neighborhood just west of Port Angeles. Red -necked grebes led the way on 8/13. Next were the Golden-crowned sparrows 9/9. Sept 15 was active with Fox sparrow, Cackling geese, Hermit thrush and Horned grebe. 9/20 Ruby crowned kinglet, Lincoln's sparrow and a flock of ~150 cedar waxwings ( there have been some around all summer, but this was the first mass gathering). I've had a couple Pine siskens all summer so I neglected to note when the numbers began to swell, but now there are quite a few.

> Separate question - I feed regularly and have a good contingent of year round birds I like to feed and watch, but it's becoming increasingly difficult for my ground feeders. As soon as I spread seeds on my deck for the towhees, Song sparrows, doves, etc, the Stellar's jays immediately come and fill their crops, go plant the seeds in my pots, yard, etc, then come back to repeat. I realize as corvids this is their instinctive nature, but does anyone have suggestions on how to moderate the pattern so I can feed the others but not go through 5 pounds of seed a day?

> It?s been a slow year in my yard for migrants compared to last year?s flurry of vireos and flycatchers but this past week American goldfinch and dark-eyed juncos arrived in numbers. This morning, several golden crowned sparrows, an orange-crowned warbler, a black-headed grosbeak and an empid foraged in the yard. Just noticed two sparrows, one a song and the other tbd. The empid was likely a pacific-slope, very green with two Buffy wing bars and characteristic eye ring. It did not linger.
