A report from the shores of Sandy Point, Ferndale came in with a sighting of 5 Short-tailed Shearwaters.
My boat Seabird with 3 aboard went out from Birch Bay to Sandy Point with no sightings.
Upon a return route, we stopped by Alden Bank and found 10 Short-tailed Shearwaters, phalarope, Heerman's Gulls, and hundreds of other gulls.
Nice looks for about 45 minutes. Most of the time they were just hanging with the gulls on the water. We did get a few nice views of them flying.
I personally don't know one shearwater from another but I've been told these are Short-tailed. Open to correction as always.

About the same number of shearwaters were seen today from a boat out off Anacortes.
