Spent some time at the little pond at the north end of the playfields at
Fort Dent in Tukwila. Saw the following birds:

85 American Widgeons
1 Eurasian Widgeon (my first :) )
12 Hooded Mergansers
12 Northern Shovelers
11 Canada Geese
4 Mallards

Outside of the pond, I saw starlings, golden-crowned kinglets, black-capped
chickadees, starlings, crows, gulls, and a robin. Heard a goldfinch, and a
red-winged blackbird.

Don't know if many folks have seen the pond, but it's all right - don't have
to walk so far if the birds are on the other side of the pond.. :) It's
also one of those places (like Coulon Park) with play equipment, which is
nice with a three year old!
