Good Morning at the Fill

Hi Tweets -

A group of us had a good morning at the Center for Urban Horticulture at
U.W. and at the Montlake Fill. Around CUH we had a couple of Anna's
Hummingbirds, White-crowned Sparrows and a flock of Bushtits. Out at the
fill we had Mallards, Northern Shoveler, Green-winged Teal and two
Northern Pintail - nice to see the ducks starting to come back to the
main pond. The highlight at the main pond had to be a very pale Horned
Lark working over the "beach" area at the southeast corner of the pond -
great views. Union Bay was packed with Gadwall, Ring-necked Duck,
American Wigeon and American Coot.

Just as we were starting to head back to the cars a Cooper's Hawk flew
in, perched for a minute, flew out to another tree and then departed for
the main campus.

Complete list below.
