Tweets – It was foggy this morning, with the fog not clearing until after 9:30. This made viewing difficult along much of our route. If I’d had more time and energy, I would have walked th loop a second time, for I think we probably missed a lot of birds the first time around. Still, we did pretty well.

Highlights:

Cackling Goose 1 with Canadas, NE corner. First of Fall
Green Heron 2 juveniles at Rowing Club pond
Wilson’s Snipe Several flushed below weir
Barn Owl Nice looks from Viewing Mound around 6:15
N. Saw-whet Owl Matt thinks he heard one in the wee hours
Pileated Woodpecker Finally seen N of concert venue after hearing oft
Merlin One flying north of grass soccer fields
Peregrine Falcon One flew W->NE over meadows
American Pipit One flushed from below weir
Western Meadowlark 4 north of fields 7-8-9, First of Fall
Evening Grosbeak Few flyovers

Yesterday, a BLACK BEAR was reported from the Rowing Club. There are photos (http://marymoor.org/Galleries/BLBE.htm) of one seen on August 30th, crossing the boardwalk. These are the first bear sightings in memory at Marymoor.

For the day, 55-56 species.
