Temp in the 50s, mostly cloudy, Wind SW 30-40 mph
Again, the high winds made birding difficult, but I did have a few sightings of note today.
At Sweeper Cove, a flock of 6 Short-tailed Shearwaters entered and flew around the cove for a few minutes.
In the Small Boat Marina at the end of Sweeper Cove, I found this almost adult Horned Puffin.
And in the Sweeper Channel, a couple of Harbor Seals were fighting over a fish.
Up at Lake Shirley, I got a brief view of the Skylark, but it flew before I got new pics.
And in late afternoon, as I drove up to the Seal Drive feeder, a Brambling took off. I waited an hour-and-a-half, but it did not return.
My trip list remains at 58.
My meager day’s eBird list is at https://ebird.org/checklist/S119740214
This will be my last post until I get home on Sunday (or Monday, depending on how tired I am and whether I had a mega-bird on the last day…).
