Hey All, "birded" Ediz Hook yesterday, and was amazed at the number of California Gulls, and it left me wondering have I been thinking everything was a Glaucous-winged hybrid, and not paying attention, but I think that this is a new, probably annual occurrence. But anyway, on the first, (western most) log booms inside the hook, there were
515 California Gulls, with only
55 Glaucous-winged Gulls, mostly first year birds
45 Heerman's Gulls
13 Harlequin Ducks
77 Black Turnstones
I was just birding with bins, and no scope, from the truck,a s I am stil not mobile.
Elsewhere along the hook, several Marbled Murrelets a few Rhinocerous Auklets and Pigeon Guilemots and a smattering of Western and Least Sandpipers patrolling the wrack, and the most fun was about 90 Red-necked Phalaropes on the north side of the jetty at the main parking area. They were in 3 groups and feeding in the kelp beds about 30 meters from the rocks, Good birding,
Drew Wheelan
