Another Look


This week, let’s take another look at the SWALLOW-TAILED GULL that I, along with several dozen other birders, observed and photographed on September 4, 2017 at Point Wells near Edmonds, WA. The mega-rarity had originally been discovered by a local birder on August 31.

It hasn’t been seen for certain by anyone for about 3 days, but plenty of local and out of town birders continue to search for it.

    Pretty birdie. We spent this morning at the Morro Bay Marina, where not one but two Yellow-crowned Night Herons were found yesterday. Both juveniles, the woman who found them noticed longer necks and thicker bills than a juvie Black crowned NH would have had. Also noticeably smaller. Word was that altho they are first sighting in our county, they were expected as the species has been seen in Santa Barbara possibly breeding. Heading your way??
