Daily Observations

Surf Scoter in Surf

Stormy weather persisted throughout the day, but I braved the gales to go talk about birds with Marge and Tedin, two long-time local birders. I took a side trip to Sandy Beach on my way out to their place and felt like I was getting hit with needles to the face on the way back into town against the wind.

Weather: Strong winds were the order of the day, though they were settling down by this evening. There was periodic rain showers, sometimes quite heavy. I noticed several lightning flashes and thunder crashes in the afternoon and then later in the evening.

Birds: There was a single Surf Scoter diving in the surf off of Sandy Beach.

I saw several cormorants along the shoreline off of Pioneer Park.
