Congrats! It's such fun to get these guys on film :)

You should head down to Damon Point, while they're down there. You're bound to see several out there at the moment.

That's funny I grew up in grays harbor and about 20 minutes from Damon point, my uncle and I went there in our first outing to find one but it was super stormy typical ocean shores weather.

Oooh, I'm so jealous, this is my nemesis bird! Very cool find! And a bonus merlin, too. ;)
