Hi Tweeters,

It was a fun morning of birding along the Columbia River along the
Vancouver waterfront.

BROWN PELICAN - one immature that sailed overhead right in front of four of
us while we birded in front of the Tidewater Marina. We could hardly
believe it! It was flying upriver. Very few Clark County records.
BLACK SCOTER - one female with a flock of 40 Surf Scoters. The flock flew
around numerous times and was seen from about a 1/2 mile east of the I-5
bridge all the way to about a 1/2 mile west of the I-205 bridge.
RED-BREASTED MERGANSER - 1 possibly 2 females
Bonaparte's Gull - 6
Surf Scoter - no less than 45 including one flock of 40
Pacific Loon - 3
Common Loon - 1
loon sp - 3
Red-necked Grebe - 3
Horned Grebe - about 15
Western Grebe - about 20
Ruddy Duck - 5
Bufflehead - 4
Greater Scaup - ~15
Lesser Scaup - 10
scaup sp - 30
Green-winged Teal - 35
Northern Pintail - 1
Northern Shoveller - 3

Brown Pelican and Brown Booby in one week ..... what's next?

Keep your eyes and ears ... open. You never know what will happen.

Good birding everyone.
