Great sea watch from Pt Wilson, Port Townsend, this evening.

I was watching a pod of orcas working their way up the Whidbey shoreline
when a Short-tailed Shearwater scope-bombed me, northbound at 5pm. A
northbound female Black Scoter right off the point was another highlight.
Full list and descriptions at https://ebird.org/checklist/S94308057.

Elsewhere around PT, fall passerine migration has been mostly Yellow
Warblers (lots) and Orange-cr Warbler (many gray-headed), with a scattering
of Warbling Vireos and Western Tanagers. A Swainson's Thrush still takes
it's evening bath at my pond.

good birding,

Steve Hampton
