    During some casual birding over the weekend, I had some good birds. The (continuing?) adult male HARLEQUIN DUCK was just offshore at Glass Beach (Nov 26).

      During some casual birding over the weekend, I had some good birds. The
      (continuing?) adult male HARLEQUIN DUCK was just offshore at Glass Beach
      (Nov 26). Our friend the LAYSAN ALBATROSS continues just offshore at Pt.
      Arena Cove shortly after noon (Nov 28). Is this really the first sighting
      this year? Two NORTHERN FULMAR were well offshore at Jug Handle State
      Reserve (Nov 26). And at least 17 RED CROSSBILL were at at least four
      different locations along the ecological staircase at Jug Handle State
      Reserve (Nov 26).
