With dead calm and flat seas, today it was easy to see birds on the water
and scope them in flight. I counted 47 Short-tailed Shearwaters between Pt
Wilson and Whidbey Island, generally moving back and forth toward feeding
frenzies and often landing on the water.

None of the Sooties we saw yesterday were present today. Ancient Murrelet
numbers continue to build, with small groups of 4-7 (with the requisite 18'
spacing between each bird) scattered about on the water.

Full list and some distant pics here:

good birding,
