On a true summer day, Evan Houston and I birded Magnuson Park. Numbers were
not high but an interesting diversity. Highlights included:

Horned Grebe
Red-necked Grebe (2)
Western Grebe (9)
Cooper's Hawk (2) - chasing each other and irritating several other birds
in the process
Short-billed Dowitcher (heard only, before dawn, flying over ponds)
Wilson's Snipe (heard only, before dawn, in meadows)
Barn Owl (2) - hissing from inside tower building
Vaux's Swift (3)
Anna's Hummingbird (13+) - everywhere in the park
Western Wood-Pewee (2) - mostly silent
Willow Flycatcher (6) - a few still calling or whitting
Orange-crowned Warbler (3)
Common Yellowthroat (6+)
Yellow Warbler (2)
Western Tanager
Black-headed Grosbeak (heard only)
