Steller's Eider

Got a couple of brief scope views of this bird, dark brown, sloped head, out quite far off the point where the CB antennas are. She was with what appeared to be a scoter, but I focused on her and not the scoter. Too far out for a decent photo. Tide was quite low and still dropping.

Scoters for sure, but too distant to tell for sure. Not Surf, but either WW or Black.

Rhinoceros Auklet

All black, small alcid, saw white strips on face and color on bill. Watched through my scope (at 40-60x) for several minutes as it bobbed on the ocean surface out just beyond the breakers.
