Hi Tweets

Michael and family are still over in Prague so Matt and I got to play at being Michael on Thursday at Marymoor. The day was schizophrenic - starting out quite foggy and chilly and damp, and then in late mid-morning burning off and lots of nice warm sun.

The birds were doing some singing, but early we couldn't always see thru the fog. Some notable birds for the day included:

Greater Scaup out at the lake
Cackling Goose - a flock of over a hundred
Northern Harrier juvenile
Cooper's Hawk - immature seen several times
Barn Owl - 1 early in the fog
Common Raven
Barn Swallow - 1 really late one
Swainson's Thrush - one early, a late bird

A total of 56 species in spite of the low visibility for much of the day.
