Hello Tweets,

The Irondale Bay Chimacum Creek Park is a lovely sheltered bay for
waterfowl. The immature Long-tailed Duck is diving with 50ish Surf Scoter,
15 Greater Scaup, and 10 Horned Grebe. I first noticed it on 10-14-11 and
then on 10-20 and 10-24. Hopefully it will stay around for others to see.

Other species on the bay today were one female White-winged Scoter, possible
female Black-winged Scoter, 15 American Wigeon, 2 Ring-neck Duck, 2
Red-necked Grebe, 1 Common Loon, 15 Mew Gull, Red-Tailed Hawk spooking 8
Great Blue Herons off their fir perches along the Chimacum Creek, and a
Belted Kingfisher .

Good Birding,
