This afternoon, there was a Leach's Storm-Petrel flying far out in the Sound off Discovery Park. It disappeared into the fog and rain, apparently headed north-northeast.
The numbers of Ancient Murrelets were impressive, with at least 32 birds, plus another 11 murrelets that were probably Ancient.
Also in the park was a single Common Redpoll, presumably the same bird seen by Jordan Gunn yesterday. We heard it several times, flying around near the Utah wetland and Capehart area, but never got a good look at it.
Despite the mixed weather, it was a great day to be out!
