>From Larry Flynn, Dennis Varza, and Brian Webster (about 10:30a-about 2:00pm)-



In addition to the birds, we had about 11 Harbor seals and at least 2 Gray.  The only shorebird, anywhere, was a single Killdeer near the sewage treatment plant near the aquarium.  Gorgeous day to be out...  warm, sunny, light winds, calm Sound.  Scoter flock no where to be seen.  Only 5 White-wings.  Long-tails are really starting to change plumages.



Credit goes to Dennis for the 1st winter Iceland and the Pintails.  The Pintails were in a tight group flying through a very busy area... great pluck.
