Tweets - I made a quick stop at Marymoor this afternoon (the weather was too
nice to pass up). Generally, things were extremely quiet, but on the lake,
along with Western Grebes, Pied-billed Grebes, and Wood Ducks, was a single,
sparkling PACIFIC LOON.

I was able to get pretty good looks, and was able to note the satiny-silver
back of the neck, the pure white chin,throat, breast, and belly, cut only by
a hint of a chin-strap.

When the rowers came out, it swam around the corner to the east, but it may
be visible from East Lake Sammamish Parkway at 187th Avenue.

This is a new bird for Marymoor, and is our 215th species for the park.
