It’s getting harder and harder to find new birds to add to my Douglas County eBird list, but on Friday’s trip to Winchester Bay we did actually add two more species, one of which was this colorful Pigeon Guillemot. The other bird was a couple of juvenile Heermann’s Gulls, but I failed to get a photo of them. A good number of the Pigeon Guillemots were hanging around the piers with Western Gulls, and Double-crested and Pelagic Cormorants. I think they were all looking for stray pieces of crab bait from the crowd of crabbers lined up along the pier.
