MacKerricher and Montgomery, 12/5/02
- At MacKerricher today, at high tide (ca. 11:00 am), I had three ROCK
SANDPIPERS amidst the plentiful Black Turnstones and Surfbirds; also a few
Ruddy Turnstones. I did a bit of a seawatch, but the waves were very high,
so I didn't see any Ancient Murrelets, but I did have one dark phase
NORTHERN FULMAR foraging. Amongst the many gulls I found a few MEW GULL.
Struck out on the Barred Owls at Montgomery Woods, but there were plenty of
VARIED THRUSH around. I don't think the owls approved of my imitation of
them - they refused to honor me with a reply.
