Didn't see this on Tweeters, so figured many would like to know . . .
Western WA Birders (Melisa Pinnow originator) and subsequently ABA Rare Bird Alert has this report.
"BROWN BOOBY at San Juan Island. Photos taken at 9:21 AM this morning very close to shore near Hannah Heights on the west side of the island. Was being chased by gulls. It did also feed at an active bait ball before being chased off again. watched it for less than 5 mins. Last seen flying north up Haro Strait."
