Seven of us braved the cold this Christmas Eve, 24 Dec 2009, at Marymoor. It was 31F and foggy when we started. We made an effort for an owl early, but drew a blank - guess the Barn Owl stayed warm someplace. It took a while for the sun to burn the fog off, but by mid-morning we almost thought we could feel some heat.
It was very quiet for Marymoor this morning with the fog and cold keeping the small birds inactive until later in the day. Nevertheless we did get some nice views. 48 species.
Pine Siskin - a flock of about 50
Common Merganser - overhead
Northern Shrike - in the East Meadow
Green Heron - at rowing club pond
