White-winged Scoter and Lawrence's Goldfinches on Wednesday, 23 May
Other birds of note this morning, 23 May: After seeing two Bank Swallows and the Chimney Swift with 8+ Vaux's Swifts, four of us continued to the Bird and Butterfly Garden. One getting-late migrant female Hermit Warbler was seen there along with three Lawrence's Goldfinches. Small numbers of Townsend's Warblers and Western Tanagers continue widespread.
Nancy Christensen and I continued to the coast to look for the female White-winged Scoter that Paul Lehman reported last week. We found it in the dwindling flock of Surf Scoter ( today's count was ~75, down from 150 last week) approximately 1/2 mile north of Camp Surf. Camp Surf is accessed at the very northern end of Seacoast Drive and Carnation Avenue.
