We went to West Seattle this afternoon to look for Surfbirds. There were no
Surfbirds nor Black Turnstones to be found anywhere on the eastside and up
to Alki, however we got lucky on the westside and south of Lighthouse
Point. It was low tide and we saw at least 6 Surfbirds associated with
Black Turnstones. Also with them were 4 Sanderlings.
In addition there was a large, noisy flock of Brants on the rocks and in
the water. One of them was banded and a photographer was able to take a
photo of the band and enlarge it. The bird had a white band on the right
leg with the letters GLP in addition to the metal band on the left leg.
Does anybody know who may be banding them?

Good birding!
