This morning we found a dead Horned Puffin located about halfway
between the 148th St crossover and the creek mouth at Ona Beach
(roughly 6 miles south of Newport). It was up at the high tide line
near the base of the dunes; appears to be an adult in non-breeding
plumage. We got photos but don’t have an online place to post. Left it
in place but with the high tide cycle and the scavengers it may not
stay there long.

Also saw a big aggregation of at least 150 Whimbrels resting and
feeding down near the water’s edge a little ways north of the 148th St
crossover. A few flocks of (unidentified) small shorebirds also flew
