"Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach, Oregon ... June 28, 2010"
The Trip:    Overcast and drizzle with tide coming in ... could not get close to Haystack Rock ... went there looking for Black Oystercatchers and Pigeon Guillemot ... we were pleasantly surprised to see quite a few Common Murre and Tufted Puffin, plus quite a few Pelagic Cormorants ... THREE new photo birds, the Tufted Puffin, Pigeon Guillemot, and Black Oystercatcher ... also seen but not photographed were groups of Brown Pelicans flying north along the coast.
