Gerard Lillie and I have been at Depoe Bay for a few days.
In addition to the many close in Gray Whales, on October 2 there were 4 or 5 Blue Whales off shore. The identification was made by the shape, height and volume of the blows. I leaned that a birder with a southern accent had seen Blue Whales the day before from the same location. I suspect that it was the birder from North Carolina who I had met about two weeks ago.
Two very likely Rock Sandpipers flew by today along the water ’s edge of the rock shore, but they weren’t well seen.
A few Casin’s Auklets and Marbled Murrelets OCT 3 and yesterday.
