Pacific Union College sponsors a birding weekend each Memorial Weekend at
the Albion Field Station their biological field station along the Albion
River, Mendocino Coast. Records of birds seen on this weekend since the
first of these birding adventures in 1995 can be seen at
posts this list after each Memorial Weekend and has done a marvelous job of
keeping accurate records. 2006 Memorial Birding list should be added soon.
I do know that the Tufted Puffin was observed once again this year 2006
Records show that the Tufted Puffin has been observed on the Memorial
Birding Adventure on the following years: 1998; 2001; 2003; 2006 the birders
have searched diligently each year to observe the Tufted Puffin off the
Mendocino shore. The years where observation was not noted doesn't mean that
the Tufted Puffin didn't nest there that year, just that the more than 50
birders searching didn't observe any Tufted Puffins on those Memorial
Weekends. Enjoy the birds the view is great.
