Turkey Vulture PPSP PCRSP
Marbled Murrelet PCRSP
We stayed until half an hour after sunset, and heard a few of the distinctive, gull-like calls. We saw a few elusive, fast-moving shapes that might have been the birds. The calls we heard were in the direction the ranger told us we should hear the Murrelets.
Northern Flicker PPSP PCRSP
Common Raven PPSP PCRSP
Tree Swallow PCRSP
Barn Swallow PCRSP PPSP
Purple Finch PCRSP
Red Crossbill PCRSP
In the top of a distant pine tree. the bill looked weird (shrike-like) and the coloration was right, and the falcon guide said it was a likely bird.
