This afternoon two large flocks of Cackling Geese, about 75-100 in each,
flew southeast over Port Townsend. In flying overland from North Beach to
downtown (from Strait of Juan de Fuca to Puget Sound), they effectively cut
off the hill of Fort Warden and took a shortcut, not going all the way
around Pt Wilson. This is exactly what they did in the spring, in the
reverse direction.

I've seen gulls, Caspian Terns, loons and cormorants do the same shortcut.

good birding,

Steve Hampton
