Hey tweets, at 11:11 a.m. just now, I found a LOGGERHEAD SHRIKE at the
Montlake Fill. It is hawking for prey in the little trees on the
northeastern edge of the "blue forest," the restoration area at the
west end of Wahkiakum Lane (the blue tubes on the north side of the
trail, not the south side). This is definitely not a Northern Shrike.

Also on view: more than 40 Violet-green Swallows, so spring is here,
despite the cold! The Western Meadowlark is still singing his little
heart out - that guy is persistent if lonely. Two immature Trumpeter
Swans are still on the lake, and a VIRGINIA RAIL is in the cattails on
the bay. Whatta day. - Connie, Seattle
