25 degrees this morning but now sunny and warming up fast. FOS RUFOUS
HUMMINGBIRD this morning (buzz only among the red flowering currants, their
favorite in early spring). The BC Chickadees, robins, Red-winged
Blackbirds, and Virginia Rails are in song, as well as the frogs and
coyotes after dark. A big momma SHARP-SHINNED HAWK visited my feeders; I
suspect she's from the pair that nested at Fort Warden last year. Our local
jay trifecta continues: Steller's, California Scrub, and the continuing
over-wintering BLUE JAY.

Afternoon low tides are now occurring every other week. They are finally
producing a decent gull roost at Pt Hudson. The other afternoon there were
several Thayer's, a Herring, a couple Californias, and a decent number of
pure Glaucous-winged Gulls among the usual Olympic and Short-billed Gulls.

Pics and Blue Jay details here:

good birding,
