Tweets - Fifteen of us trudged around Marymoor today. It was cold and dark
and breezy and wet. Not terrible, but not very nice either. Certainly
nothing like the last couple of balmy days. Oh, if only we'd had
yesterday's weather! Not too terribly birdy, but we managed to see quite a
lot.

Highlights:

Gr. Wh-fronted Goose 1 with Canadas flying
Wilson's Snipe 3 near weir
Anna's Hummingbird Female on nest NE of mansion
Red-breasted Sapsucker 2-3 seen, pair at possible nest site
Hairy Woodpecker Male checking out 2009 nest hole
Northern Shrike 1 south of the model airplane field
Yellow-rumped Warbler Both races, increasing numbers
Fox Sparrow A few singing
Lincoln's Sparrow One at Compost Piles
White-crowned Sparrow Singing pugetensis
American Goldfinch One bright yellow male

Yesterday, Lillian Reis photographed a TURKEY VULTURE overhead.

Also yesterday, I had a male NORTHERN SHOVELER, and two BAND-TAILED PIGEON,
both new for the year.

This week added seven species to the park 2010 list: Northern Shoveler,
Turkey Vulture, Band-tailed Pigeon, Say's Phoebe, Violet-green Swallow,
Townsend's Solitaire, and Savannah Sparrow, to bring the park year list up
to 86 species.
