Tweets - the morning dawned absolutely gorgeous, with not a cloud in the
sky, the almost-full moon setting, along with Jupiter, and Mt. Rainier
shining in the morning sun. And then the weather changed. By 9:00 a.m., we
had a thick overcast, and by a little after 10:00, it was starting to
drizzle a touch. It was not tremendously birdy, but there were several nice
highlights:

Green Heron At least 3 juveniles, lots of looks
American Kestrel New for '10. NE corner of the park
Pileated Woodpecker One landed near the mansion, another called
Or.-crowned Warbler 3+, including singing male
Yellow Warbler 3+, including singing male
Black-throated Gray 3+, male and female/juv.
Wilson's Warbler 2 males, faint singing
C. Yellowthroat Still abundant

We had low numbers, but still fairly good diversity of our breeding birds,
including 1 RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD, 1-2 WESTERN WOOD-PEWEE, 5+ WILLOW
FLYCATCHER, 2+ SWAINSON'S THRUSH heard (and Matt & Scott reported more
pre-dawn, which were probably migrants), 1+ SAVANNAH SPARROW, and 1
BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAK.

While we did have a male PURPLE MARTIN flying high over Dog Central, they
appear to be done with the gourds for the year.

For the day, 54 species, with Kestrel new for the year.

Note my email address has changed to reflect the Verizon->Frontier
switchover.
