Norwegian Point Park, Hansville - Mar 30th
This was our first visit to this Park, which is less than a mile West of Point-No-Point.
Annamarie spotted three cormorants perched on pilings. One of them looked different and I could see the red on his face before we got out of the car. We thought for sure this was a Red-faced Cormorant. But after consulting the experts, it's been determined he was a Pelagic Cormorant with a generous amount of red in his face. Red-faced Cormorants also have blue in their bill but this cormorant didn't.
A short distance down the beach a flock of Brants landed and seemed to be feeding on grass at the water line.
Two pairs of Mallards landed in the water behind the light house at Point-No-Point.
Three Surf Scoters at Fort Ward Park on an earier date.
This Northern Flicker landed high in a fir tree above our house.
The spots on his front body and the shape of his bill indicate a Northern Flicker. This one was at Point-No-Point, two miles north of the above Flicker. While I was adjusting the backlight on the camera, he flew away and I missed seeing him fly.
