Yesterday at Yaquina Head several thousands common murres were staging just off Colony Rock at Yaquina Head (photo attached). Hearing murres vocalizing and watching flocks of white-winged scoters headed north made it feel like spring.
At Port Dock One in Newport a California sea lion had herring eggs stuck to its neck and head indicating what it had been pursuing. Another sign spring is approaching.
