This morning a little before 6am I spotted a white Sulid heading south in Puget Sound from Discovery Park. I was with Alex Meilleur on south beach at the time, and Eric Hope also saw the bird from West Point. We’re confident that it wasn’t a Brown Booby, but we’re still trying to work out the ID from some digiscope videos I took (none of us have experience with Masked Booby, Nazca Booby, or light morph Red-footed).
It was hard to see at a distance (decent shimmer today - visibility not superb), and we lost it as it was heading south towards Alki. Hopefully it is seen by others, and I’m still here, hoping it comes back north!
