Tweeters,

Another pulse of Black-vented Shearwaters heading to Oregon. Maybe we can
get one in Washington this time.

(Humboldt Bay jetty)



Hey
Birders,
This
morning I birded the north jetty from ~1100-1300 and noted
many hundreds of BLACK-VENTED SHEARWATERS again streaming
north up the coast. Most were on direct northward
trajectories in groups of 10-100 with relatively few
foraging, until ~1230 when a massive raft of 800-1000 birds
began to form quite distantly offshore. Interesting to see
these birds pushing north again after their apparent
turnaround in southern Oregon a week ago. I wasn't
able to pick out anything else of note amongst the wayward
BVSH parade.
Good
birding,
Lizzie
Feucht
Arcata,
