Re: Oceanside Common Tern and Ancient Murrelet and Long tailed duck; Escondido

10:49 am

There is a single, apparent Ancient Murrelet now south of the pier. The distance from the beach is equidistant between the bait shop and bathroom buildings on the pier and it’s drifting further south by the minute (currently just past tower 5). Quick back-of-camera pics seem to suggest the (or an) oil patch bird.
