Are there more eastside/shrub-steppe birds showing up on the west side this
spring or am I just noticing more posts?

Tweets - what a great week at Marymoor! This morning was gorgeous and
sunny, with a bit of ground fog early, but clearing to a sunny, WARM day.
The rain held off until after we all got home. It was fairly birdy, and we
had some great surprises!
Wood Duck Several nice looks
Pileated Woodpecker Near windmill - great look
SAGE THRASHER 1 at Compost Piles
American Pipit 25+ on the parking field in the NE
Or.-crowned Warbler Only 1 - quite yellow (lutescens?)
Y.-rumped Warbler 15+, mostly Myrtle's, singing
BREWER'S SPARROW 1 at Pea Patch
Lincoln's Sparrow At least 2
Wh.-cr. Sparrow Heard 1 gambelii, rest were pugetensis
Western Meadowlark 4+ in East Meadow
Evening Grosbeak Flock of ~6 flew west over Dog Meadow
This was the 3rd record for SAGE THRASHER at Marymoor, the other two times
being 17-Apr-2002 and 03-May-2007. This was also the 3rd record for
BREWER'S SPARROW at Marymoor, the other two times being 30-Apr-2000 and
There were very few ducks and geese - maybe 30 birds total, comprising 7
species. Hummingbirds, on the other hand, were especially numerous, with
probably 8 or more of each of ANNA'S and RUFOUS.
New for the year today were SAGE THRASHER, AMERICAN PIPIT, ORANGE-CROWNED
WARBLER, and BREWER'S SPARROW. Adding in the GREEN HERON, AMERICAN KESTREL,
CASPIAN TERN, and COMMON YELLOWTHROAT from Tuesday, that's 8 new species for
the week, bringing the year list to 104.
For the day, 65 species. We've had 84 species so far this April.
