Late this morning at the Cedar River Mouth (CRM) in Renton, the juvenile GLAUCOUS GULL was with a few other gulls. By early afternoon, no gulls were present. At a distance I spotted a SURF SCOTER, swimming it's way toward me. When it reached a few BUFFLEHEADS beyond the driftwood, it lingered, then swam back the other direction, away from me. Immediately, I moved my focus to a few BUFFLEHEADS right in front of the boathouse and set eyes on another dark bird with white spots on the head. This time, to my surprise, the bird was a HARLEQUIN DUCK. A first for me at this location. As I watched, it hunted alone and with a few Buffleheads until after 3:00. It was still there when I left. As I arrived at my car, a BROWN CREEPER greeted me on a tree alongside. Not bad for a gullless afternoon at CRM. Videos to follow tomorrow.
