Sorry I forgot to post this earlier. On a birding weekend in Snohomish
County, Russ Koppendrayer and I made a brief stop at Tye Lake Park in Monroe.
We found a pair of Western Kingbirds nest building behind a transformer
on a power line pole on the south side of the lake. Also had a couple
minute visit by a Pectoral Sandpiper. All this about 7 AM.
We had a total of 82 species seen in two days of birding. Other areas
birded were the farm ponds near Lord Hill on the Snohomish - Monroe Highway

PM on Saturday), Lord Hill Regional Park, Crescent Lake, pond near State
