A Post Storm Addition

Today, after the storm let up, I headed out to see what could be found in the Sea-Bird department. I blasted out to the high cliffs above Agate Beach, got myself set up in the wind and rain to scan the white cap tortured ocean. Large flocks of Brant pushed north along with an intermingling of Surf Scoters. Single Pacific and Red-throated Loons along with a high flying squadron of stunningly beautiful breeding plumage Common Loons also fought wind and rain to move north. The highlight for me however, were two chubby black and white Pigeon Guillimots nearly “skipping” across the wave tops. They turned out to be my 166th species for the year.
