Notes: I moved to the winter alternative site at the upper parking
lot Peter Iredale.where I can scope, if necessary, from the relative
comfort of my vehicle.  PACIFIC LOONS were moving north (yes, north)
at 3-15/minute.  A single HEERMANN'S GULL was going south.

Mike Patterson               Alas, to wear the mantle of Galileo,
Astoria, OR                  it is not enough to be persecuted    
celata at            by an unkind establishment,
                             you must also be right.
