Ahh, I meant to mention this when we got back from Fort Flagler after Labor
Day weekend -- but there were a pretty good number of COMMON LOONS
majestically cruising around between Marrowstone and Indian Islands on
Sunday and Monday of last week.
It also appears to have been just a BUMPER year for GB Herons; one could
hardly look any direction without seeing at least three or four, and often
there would be well over a dozen working the flats along the borders of
Mystery Bay. Practically no guillemots at all, and a handful of PLOVERS flew
through every afternoon, stood around looking exhausted for awhile, and then
ambled around feeding for a few hours before bedtime.
