This morning stopped off briefly at Skagit WRA Jensen unit. Snow Geese out in the marsh! Only about 60 or so. (later in the afternoon met a fellow at the Hayton Farms access who said they were there on 9/25 last year ).Also a few Black- bellied Plovers around. About a dozen Pipits, a number of Yellow-rumped Warblers in the few trees there, a single Raven, and a few each Savannah, Song and White-crowned Sparrows about.

Stopped by later in the afternoon. The tide up - dozens of Black-bellied Plovers around making their pleasant calls. A few Western Sandpipers sharing logs with the Plovers. A single Red-necked Grebe. Thousands and thousands of ducks! Mostly Widgeons and Mallards - the sun setting so it was hard to see what else was out there.

Coming back home to Everett stopped briefly at the sewage ponds. A single Lincoln's Sparrow in the brush, along with W.C and Song Sparrows. Many Bonapartes Gulls, Coots, Ruddy Ducks, and Ring-necked Ducks on the 'pond'. And lurking amongst them all, a single female Canvasback.
