Still no red legs


There were still loads of kittiwakes out east last Thursday..............


I still couldn't find any Red-legged Kittiwakes. Statistically there must have been some I guess but it was beyond my luck/skill to find them. I did see 1 or 2 several years ago at Yakumo but they were only distant immatures (and even then I didn't clinch the ID until I got home and checked on the computer).

Still it was nice to see Black-legged Kittiwakes so close in 2 of the ports..............





And I got some BIF work in..............

  2. I think of Red-legged Kittiwakes being on the Alaskan side of the Pacific, but of course birds fly and they could well have joined your flock of Black-legged Kittiwakes.
