Birding Log - Mar 3, 2013

Two of our new species were discovered at the Oyster Plant Park pier in Poulsbo. This Common Goldeneye was interested in what he was finding near the pier so we got a very close look at him.


These two Surf Scoters were further away and the first we had ever identified.


Our third new bird today was a Greater Yellowlegs which Annamarie spotted in a fresh water stream flowing into Hood Canal near Seabeck.


Also at the Oyster Plant Pier we found this odd couple, a Red-breasted Merganser...


..and this Hooded Merganser.


These Grebes were feeding near the Seabeck Dock, which was under renovation so we could not walk out on it.


On the beach near the pier at Seabeck we found this pair of American Wigeons.


Our first stop for the day had been Point-No-Point where we found the usual Great Blue Heron and Song Sparrows. But what we had thought were Wigeons, were in fact several pairs of Mallards and we got our best photo of a pair yet.


We also visited Twin Spits where Buffleheads were the only birds except the even more common gulls.

Scenic Beach Park yielded nothing within photo distance.

This Anna's Hummingbird was at our feeder at home.
