     Wednesday, July 18, 11:27 AM. Yes, this is Evelyn Peaseley (206)
782-9018. This is Wednesday morning about 11 o'clock. I just had a call from
a friend who lives on Marrowstone Island, that she and her family had last
night noticed four rather large brownish birds on the road, at Blue Heron
Road. They were there again this morning flying around  in the underbrush.
She thinks they look like hawks. I suspect they're newly fledged RED-TAILS.
But in case anybody is in the area or is interested, that's the information.
You can call me back but I can't tell you very much more than that. Thank
you.

     Wednesday, July 18, 8:43 PM. Hi. This is Brad Wilson, (253) 845-3216. I
just got back from a camping trip at Lake Ozette, Sunday the 15th through
today Wednesday the 18th. Unfortunately the NORTHERN PARULA was not spotted
or heard and I birded the area thoroughly, but I did spot a NORTHERN PYGMY
OWL, also many COMMON NIGHTHAWKS with lots of YELLOW and WILSON'S WARBLERS
with COMMON YELLOWTHROATS.
    I took a hike down to the beach where I spotted WHIMBRELS, WESTERN
 SANDPIPERS, WANDERING TATTLERS, BLACK OYSTERCATCHERS and GREATER
YELLOWLEGS.
     Also took a drive out to Cape Flattery where there was at least 20 or
so
breeding plumaged TUFTED PUFFINS just below the observation deck with many
PIGEON GUILLEMOTS, some COMMON MURRES and PELAGIC CORMORANTS and RHINOCEROS
AUKLETS and the GUILLEMOTS, MURRES and CORMORANTS were all nesting in the
cliffs right below the observation deck where you could see them landing on
their eggs and feeding some young.. Other than that there was nothing else
spectacular or out of the ordinary. But as I said I was sorry the NORTHERN
PARULA was not there and I tried my darnest to find it. Anyways, that's it.
Good luck and good birding.
