It has been six days straight that I have seen the Ybl at Point
Wilson. Two of those days I have seen two individual birds. There must have
been close to thirty others who have also seen the YbL many for the first
time. If you are interested in seeing the YbL your best chance is between
the hours of 1200 and 1600 north of the lighthouse at Point Wilson. Look to
the east across Admiralty Inlet and west towards mid channel. Most days the
YbL has first been sighted to the east and moves with the current in a
westerly direction feeding. Good luck.
