Rare Bird on the Rocks


This week’s photo, taken December 28, 2015 from the pier in Edmonds, WA, features a SURFBIRD, a shorebird usually found in Washington state along the rocky shores of the outer coast. However, for the past few weeks, Surfbirds have been observed feeding along the inland waters of the Puget Sound. Apparently, the word is spreading within the Surfbird community that the barnacles on the Edmonds jetty are quite tasty, and 3 – 6 Surfbirds have been seen daily during low tide, when the lower water line exposes those yummy barnacles.
