"Best" birds this morning (7:15-noon) were a half dozen Red-breasted Mergansers southbound overhead, plus the usual four Alcid spp., nine Western Sandpipers, and more usual birds. Most distracting was the show put on by about eight orca whales from 9:15 to 11-plus, sometimes close, including tail slaps, pectoral fin waves, rolls, spy hops, and full breaches (!). No salmon-driven bird feeding scrums happened during this interval. Also harbor porpoise and harbor seals.
