Hermit Thrush, in the landscaped area between Toys R
Us and the Doubletree Inn near the Southcenter Pond.
Very cooperative bird, loosely associating with a
dominant male Robin.
Say's Phoebe, finally I got to see the "alleged"
Phoebe at Boeing Ponds. I have missed this bird many
times. Glad to see it found enough food through that
cold snap. It was in the brush in the pond area.
Green Heron, Boeing ponds.
Other notable stuff this weekend was 3 adult Trumpeter
Swans at flooded fields north of Smith Brothers Dairy
on Sunday. Also saw 3 adult Trumpeter Swans yesterday
in flooded fields off of Frager Rd, N of 212th. I
suspect they are the same birds, can't be sure though.
At the Smith Bros. fields was hundred of Americn
Wigeons with at least 4 Eurasian Wigeons in there.
Between Southcenter pond and Kent ponds saw at least 2
dozen Ruddy Ducks.
PS, thanks for the microtene/tine info for those who
emailed me off and online.
