Still in the doldrums…

Temp in the 50s, south wind, 10-15 mph, partly sunny.

No Taiga Flycatcher today.

We found nothing new today. The triplist is stuck at 46.

There was a flock of 41 Ruddy Turnstones in Seal Rock Cove. The number of Horned Grebes is building — now about 15.

The tide was higher this evening, inundating much of the flats (but not all) at Clam Lagoon. We hope this bodes well.

Another birder arrived on today’s plane. He will be here only till Sunday, but an extra pair of eyes never hurts.

Waiting for the rain…
