This morning (6:30-7:45 AM) I did some sea-watching from the Cliff House before conditions got a bit hazy.
Observations of local interest:
BRANT 8 (on the ocean, well out past the rocks)
Horned Grebe 1 (on the ocean, just S of the rocks)
Com. Loon 2
Pacific Loon 4 (all in alt. plumage)
Red-thr. Loon 30
N. FULMAR 2 (flying out past the rocks)
Black Oystercatcher 4
Black Turnstone 13
Com. Murre 5
RHINOCEROS AUKLET 1 (fly-by SW )
A quick loop through Lobos Dunes produced 1 Bewick's Wren and a flock of 25 Band-tailed Pigeons flying N.
