Whidbey Island, November 7, 2014



Hi Tweets,



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.



Good birding!
