April 9, 6:35 PM - Hi. Scott Downes (206) 361 7073. Today about 5:30 over

Robinson on Maury Island. The Tahoma Audubon trip saw five SOLITAIRES there
that morning. Also, an immature PEREGRINE FALCON made a half-hearted try at
pigeons at the Vashon ferry dock on Friday, the seventh.

parking lot access meets the trail at the Stillwater Unit of the Snoqualmie
Wildlife Recreational area. The third one was down south of there about a
third of a mile on the trail. That's it. Good luck, and good birding.
