We travelled offshore again today to point about 6.2 miles west of Yaquina Head. On the way out we encountered a tuftless puffin (literally) at 5.4 miles (photo attached). There was pretty much the same compliment of bird species seen on previously reported trips. Inshore we had a tufted puffin (with tufts) flyby about 300 yards west of Yaquina Head and in the same area we observed a recently fledged marbled murrelet on the water.
