Media notes

Natural calls from group of 3 breeding plumage males and 2 females just off the beach at 7:16am. Highpass filter 200 Hz in Ocen Audio.

Observation details

Southbound pair at 6:11am, southbound M at 6:38am, then noticed pair foraging at point at 6:47am. Then 2m1f flew in from north and landed at point at 7:07am. It was fun to watch the groups of 2 and 3 notice each other, and coalesce and get acquainted into a tight little flock of 5. They hung out at the point all morning, photos, vocal at times, attempted recordings. Then another southbound pair mid-range on sound at 8:11am! Southbound movement today is maybe migrants heading up to the Mt. Rainier drainages?
