This morning (11/12/17) Houston Flores, Adrian Lee, and I birded the Alki Point area in West Seattle. The highlight was a Mountain Chickadee with a mixed flock moving through the pines on Benton Pl SW just off of Beach Drive SW.
Scoping from the lighthouse was productive though we didn't see anything unexpected. The alcid showing was solid with 1 Ancient Murrelet, 6 Marbled Murrelets, 3 Common Murre, 11 Pigeon Guillemot, and 4 Rhinoceros Auklet. We also had 1 Long-tailed Duck and 4 returning Brant.
