Hi Tweets,

It was a beautiful but chilly morning in Edmonds. Long underwear
took the bite out of the wind on the public pier. The sun felt good
but it had a bit of wintry quality. There was no return of Steve
Pink's Ancient Murrelets, even though we looked closely. The most
abundant numbers were of Western Grebe and Surf Scoter. A pair of
Anna's Hummingbirds were engaging in courtship activity at Point
Edwards. There were very few species seen at Edmonds Marsh so I have
combined those with Point Edwards.
