Got to see the Yellow-browed warbler with John Vooys, Ed, and Larry on Tuesday.
On the way there, we did some birding from the ferry. The sun came up just as we got to Active Pass. Among other species, we saw a couple of Rhinoceros auklets and some Heerman's gulls. Heerman's gull by Joel Schmidt, on Flickr
There were about 40 other birders at Panama Flats. After some waiting and looking around, the warbler finally appeared. He/she flitted around a lot and was among branches the whole time, but we were still able to get decent looks: Yellow-browed warbler by Joel Schmidt, on Flickr
We stopped by the breakwater at Ogden Point, but decided to cut it short because of strong winds and a high tide. Before we left though, we came across a pair of River otters: River otters by Joel Schmidt, on Flickr
