Whidbey Island, November 7, 2014
Mary Anne Thorbeck joined Barbara and me for a scouting trip to Whidbey Island yesterday. We had fine weather with scattered clouds and temps from the mid 40s early to the low 50s. The bird of the day was a YELLOW-BILLED LOON that Mary Anne spotted about 75 yards offshore at Libbey Beach County Park. We also saw RED-THROATED and PACIFIC LOONS there, several MARBLED MURRELET pairs, HARLEQUIN DUCKS in close, and had a fly-by of a dozen BLACK TURNSTONES. In the trees behind us we found about a dozen RED CROSSBILLS. Our list for the day was 86 species.
