This afternoon there were at least 400 MARBLED MURRELETS on the water north
of Marrowstone Island, roughly between Flagler Campground and Marrowtone
Pt, up around the Port Townsend-Coupeville ferry route. Another birder
counted over 500. It was quite astounding.

This is consistent with my observation the other day of 5 MAMU/minute
passing southbound past Pt Wilson for at least 30 minutes (and probably for
a lot longer).

I assume this concentration would include birds from Vancouver Island as
well as Washington.

good birding,
