We saw 2 birds flush (as we left) from a bare area in the trees below the white fence. This is before the main bluff of burrows. We had seen birds flying into this area and knew 1 or two had stayed. We did not see burrows in this area.
2 PIGU sat on tree root sticking out of ledge near top of bluff for most of the hour. A couple times, they looked puffed up and like they were mating, then one flew off, circled over the water and came back. At one point, a flicker joined them on the tree root. Fair amount of PIGU vocalizations now and then and circling over inlet before landing either in water or on tree root. A cormorant wrestled for several minutes with a very large perch before eating it.
