7/31/06 Ten Mile North to Hardy Creek Hwy 1
- This morning I drove up the coast from Ten Mile River to to Hardy
Ten Mile River: Long-tailed Duck, 2 Red-necked Phalaropes, 4
Long-billed Dowitchers, Western Sandpipers & Semipalmated
Westport: An adult, male Hooded Oriole landed on a wire south
of the store/post office.
Wages & Howard Creeks: A Vaux's Swift at Wages, and Wilson's
Warblers at both creeks.
Juan Creek: 4 Purple Martins carrying food up under the bridge,
a Marbled Murrelet, 2 Pacific Loons, Pigeon Guillemots, and
a fledgling Common Murre following closely behind its parent,
apparently the father. The young bird was much smaller than
the parent - cool to see.
Hardy Creek: An Osprey soared above the cove.
