Early morning, Ian Boustead and I stopped at the Tyee Marina near Tacoma for the adult Black-tailed Gull. Ian eventually spotted the bird and the whole crowd got on it. It was too far away for decent pictures.
Then we proceeded to Hoquiam where it was easy to get good looks at the immature Orchard Oriole, the Clay-colored Sparrow and the Chestnut-collared Longspur. A Tropical Kingbird was also present at the same spot.
We ended the day at the Westport Marina where we failed to locate any Rock Sandpipers.
Still quite a few Brown Pelicans were hanging around.
A winter-plumaged Common Loon.
An adult Mew Gull, also very close.
And finally a Western Grebe.
