    Common Eiders were pretty common

    2
    Cedar Waxwing

    3
    A tern of some kind. Not a good enough picture to say what kind. It was diving into the water for food.

    4
    Three Northern Gannets flying about

    5
    Norther Gannet, Adult

    6
    Norther Gannet, possibly immature

    7
    I think greater yellowlegs. Possibly a Willet. Bad lighting makes it hard to know. I went with the pointer beak for prelim. ID

    8
    Cedar Waxwing in a blueberry patch. Probably same one different day as it was the same spot

    Song Sparrrow singing in bad lighting

    A flock of cormorants. They do this along this stretch of coast as either pairs or larger groups.

    Is this a bug or a bird? (There were many of these visiting flowers. This was around 11,000', I have never seen anything like it elsewhere.)



    Are these birds actually eating snow? They are thermal-riders, they were 600' above the tree line, there's virtually nothing growing up there, I can't imagine there was any food to be had up there.
