Marbled Murrelet

Today a lone Marbled Murrelet was found by longtime birder Stefan Schlick, at Henry Hagg Lake, outside Forest Grove. Among the birders who flocked to the lake hoping to spot the bird were @insectology and @susankirkbride both of whom were able to successfully photograph the bird. For those unfamiliar with the species, it nests in old growth forest, usually along the coast. Other vagrants have been found before, farther inland, but this was a first for Washington County.
