Hi Tweets,

After the windstorm and rain of last night, the Edmonds waterfront
was almost placid this morning. There was some blue sky and lots of
activity on the water. No Ancient Murrelets yet though. We did
enjoy four raptors: Bald Eagle, Cooper's Hawk, Merlin, and Red-
tailed Hawk. Also of interest was a large skein of Cackling Geese
was flying south.
