Topic: Seawatch birds

Although many of the birds were far out today, good numbers of scoter, loons and cormorant passed the watch today. Also seen were gannets, 2 Common Eider, Ring-necked Duck, Horned Grebe, Black Duck, Long-tailed Duck, 1 Parasitic Jaeger, Green-winged Teal, Great Blue Heron and Purple Sandpipers.  The big day for Red-throated Loons should be any day now.  Last years's big day total for Red-throated Loons was 8,000+.
