    It is no surprise but your record is the only one I know of for Protection Island.

  While on the "Puffin Cruise" to Protection Is. Saturday evening, I saw an adult male Purple Martin fly to one of the docks on the island and disappear somewhere into the structure, as if entering a nest cavity.  It then reappeared and perched on the dock.  Does anyone know if martins have previously been reported at Protection Is.?  It seems no big surprise since they seem to be regular in summer on Sequim Bay and around Pt. Townsend.

  Thanks, Bob
