Comments:
From Tweeters: "Steve Pink and I left my place in Federal Way around 9:30 AM. We ran into rain around 10:30 in Olympia. Continued pretty much all day... Winds at the jetty were kicking up about 20-30 mph out of the SW and we ere not eager to get out of the car but with our bins we could see a large number of Sooty Shearwaters and Black-legged Kittiwakes coming right into the mouth of the harbor and cavorting wildly in the gusty winds. We quickly strapped on raincoats and pants and stuffed our pockets with handkerchiefs and lens tissues to combat the rain. Walking out to scope the open ocean and the jetty for about 1/2 hour we saw the following birds. We got pretty soaked so we then headed to the sewage ponds which were pretty deserted and then into town for a late lunch/early dinner."
