Spent 3 hours at the Cove this morning. Gorgeous light once the haze lifted.
Highlights were 7-10 parasitic jaegers and 2 pomarines.
4 common loons, 1 Pacific loon; and 2 _very_ early red-throated loons in alternate plumage.
Surf scoters and dabbling ducks, mostly pintails and wigeons.
5 small alcids not Cassin’s auklets but too far out to identify.
