Hello tweeters,

Netta Smith and I saw and photographed an immature Black-legged Kittiwake in Port Townsend, Jefferson County, yesterday (11 March). It flew in and perched on a piling in the enclosure formed by pilings at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center at around noon. But a Glaucous-winged Gull decided it wanted the piling and displaced the kittiwake as we were watching it, and it flew out over the water and disappeared. I’m just noting the record, as this species is certainly rare in Puget Sound.
