On a walk down Manzanita beach (south) this morning, 15 dead Common Murres (all adults) along 1/2 kilometer of shoreline. I assume food shortage, although they didnít seem particularly emaciated. Anyone know whatís going on? Also, a half-dozen Heermannís Gulls (all adults) flying north, all adults. It has been mentioned that young HEEGs are scarce to absent in California.
