Marbled Murrelet Survey

4:53 AM it's still pretty dark but you can hear them

7:30 AM surveyors packed the Green Salmon in Yachats

Marbled Murrelets are seabirds that nest in old growth trees.

Populations have sharply declined due to habitat degradation

on land and in the ocean. It was very thrilling to hear and see

them as they returned to their nests.
