Subject: [Tweeters] Alki Point Mountain Chickadee, alcids
Hi tweeters,

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.

Ebird checklists from Adrian are here:

Good birding,

Sam Terry
Seattle
