Blaine Washington

We drove to Blaine Harbor and Semiahmoo Spit in Blaine, Washington, U.S.A. where the temperature of the day was much lower than our very, very hot day at home.

The harbor area at Semiahmoo is dotted with a picturesque water tower and buildings.

We saw a Bonaparte’s Gull near Birch Bay Beach.

We also visited Blaine Marine Park and enjoyed watching Great Blue Herons out on the mud flats.

Purple and House Finches were seen along the edges of a pathway.

American Goldfinches were enjoying the multitude of Thistle seeds available.

Several Killdeer and Semipalmated Plovers were seen in the distance on the mud flats.

A few Sandpipers were also seen in the distance in the same area.

A few Caspian Terns were seen in the distance as well.

A White-crowned Sparrow was seen with a juvenile.

At the fishing dock we saw Rock Pigeons.

Pelagic Cormorants were seen in the same area.

Looking off in the East we could see hundreds of Double-crested Cormorants nesting on the Jetty.
