Mile 300 Report
August 15, 2010
Pod of orcas 500 yards off Manzanita beach right now!
Pod of orcas 500 yards off Manzanita beach right now! Easily six to eight fins visible at any given time. Perfect viewing weather. Look just north of Ocean and Manzanita intersection to see them. They've been circling for an hour or so.
All Mile 300 Reports
More than 30 mid-sized, dead birds of what looked like the same species and one sea gull and one crow. Not too much sea plastic - I picked up some of it. Large burnt stumps and logs were rolling around in the high tide. Farther south, the ocean has removed the dune and some of the paths end in a sand cliff now.
We had big storms the past few days! On just mile 300 there were at least 11 deceased Cassin's auklet. All the locals were talking about it.
It was a beautiful morning on the last day of the "bonus" king tides in November. The biggest shock was finding a deceased Peregrine Falcon!
