“Getting up the hill” New additions to the Carbon Free Big Year.

Today found me with two new species to my carbon free big year. I headed out to Duxbury Reef to work on my sea birds and I was rewarded with Pacific Loon and Common Murre. There was a very large flock of about 3500 birds in a very large feeding flock composed of Brandt’ and Pelagic Cormorants, Common Murre and very large numbers of Pacific Loons and fewer Red-throated and still fewer Common Loons. Also the flock hosted many Western and Glacous-winged Gulls and Brown Pelicans. I am now at 129 species since Jan. 1st.
