Passing this along with caveats that the odds of this bearing out at pretty slim. Nevertheless, it would be great for anyone considering a trip to the North Jetty in Pacific Co to poke around a bit for a possible Wrentit.

I received this as a forward of a forward of a forward email, so I don’t have more info - the observer is apparently an experienced out of state birder - If headed out there, definitely worth a look [and possibly also for a Rock Wren instead?]

Good birding,

>> Mid-afternoon of today the 12th I was birding the North Jetty of Cape Disappointment, from the top of the jetty by the gate/parking lot. As I climbed onto the rocks I saw a WRENTIT in the crevasses between the rocks. Saw from 10 ft, for a short time before it hopped to another rock. Long enough to get the binocs on it, but not a photo. In the binocs the id as a Wrentit was instantaneous. I have experience with the species in other parts of the west, but this is only my second day birding WA.

>> The habitat was totally wrong, so I’m sure confused what it is was doing there.


>> From the top of the jetty I saw a Black-footed Albatross, about 300 ft off the rocks.
