St. Lawrence, 13 July

Shot the first Pribiloff Sandpiper seen. Ned, F. + I went up to the left, along the edge of the tundra, + found the Longspur common, and got a few. We saw eiders, P. Sandp's -- + Ned got an Oldsquaw [female] -- Saw a tern, Jaegers, Kittiwakes, + a big gull, probably glaucescens. When we got back to the boat, other members of the party had phalarope ([male] Red) + dunlins, + Dr. M had 4 young swans, the adult of which had led Dr. Mer. a long and windy chase -- he taking them for polar bears, wh. are said to be abundant in St. Lawrence Id.
