Hello Everybirdy,

  Took a spin out to the beach today.  No wind!  Still plenty of Northern
Gannets (100+), mostly immature.  They were quite close to the shore.  At one
point a group spotted some dolphins, who apparently were hot on the "tails" of
food, and started plunging in.  Very nice views.
  Several hundred American Goldfinches cruising along the beach road.  Oddly
enough, almost all were travelling north.

  Blackpoint drive is hoppin' now!  Didn't see the Canada Goose, but wasn't
really looking.  Was looking for the Goldeneye again, no luck.  Stop 7, tons of
Dunlin, Western and Least Sandpiper, several Short-billed and Long-billed
Dowitchers, each group keeping to themselves it seemed.
  Didn't concentrate too much today, just wanted the pleasant morning drive!
