Astoria Snow Bunting (12/13/2014)

 

The Snow Bunting at the Astoria Riverwalk was quickly located, with help from Andrew Mattingly.

I dipped on the Fultano Pizza TK, but found several sluggish Red Phalaropes at the South Jetty, my other target for the morning. Looking for something more substantial, a Peregrine Falcon nailed a White-winged Scoter which had landed in one of the small pools at the jetty. That’s quite a large pray for the falcon which he couldn’t lift up as the scoter weighs about twice as much as the falcon.
