One or possibly a series of Townsend's Solitaires have been seen
sporadically at Fort Warden the past two weeks-- at the batteries, at the
tent cabins, and on the beach below the cliffs. I got pics of an especially
confiding one this morning:

Pt Wilson has produced a scattering of Whimbrels, and today a flyover
Caspian Tern, first of the season. Audubon's and Myrtle Warblers, and
Orange-cr Warblers are quite vocal around town. Early birds have been one
Western Tanager and one Wilson's Warbler. Most interesting have been large
flocks (hundreds per flock) of Cackling Geese flying northwest low over
town the past three mornings, shortcutting the point by crossing from the
Kahtai Lagoon area to North Beach.

Looking forward to more migration in the coming weeks!

good birding,

Steve Hampton
Port Townsend, WA
