Bird Outing Report: Tyee Spit, Sept.29,2016

Today, Sept 29th, 16 birders spent a pleasant morning at Tyee Spit. Large numbers of waterbirds were moving and feeding in Discovery Passage which gave us multiple good views. Overall we found 33 species. Thanks particularly to Gordon for looking up, while everyone else was looking only at the water, and finding the perched Merlin above our heads!
