We were also at Jennette's Pier this morning between about 10 and 11:30. We didn't do an actual count, but would estimate there were at least several hundred Razorbills visible from the pier, probably more, and a somewhat larger number of Red-throated Loons. Partly responsible for the high numbers were an ocean surface so smooth and air so calm that it was possible, using a 92mm scope at 100x, to ID Razorbills on the water out to a distance of about 1.5-2 miles from the end of the pier.
Also, the Golden-crowned Sparrow was still at the Harbinger stake-out about 9:00 AM.
