Subject: [obol] Yaquina Bay Herring event continues
Hi -

Today about 1 PM a "wolfpack" of sea lions traveled down the shipping channel to the ocean, with much splashing and porpoising, behavior often associated with feeding on herring schools.

The number of diving ducks has increased off the south jetty, with well over 500 Surf Scoters, 2 Black Scoters, at least 4 Long-tailed Ducks, 20+ goldeneyes, including at least 1 Barrows drake and 1 hybrid drake, and 40+ Buffleheads, and 20 or so Greater Scaup.

Weather was far better than forecast, with mostly sunny skies and light north wind.
