Oops. Forgot to say that I saw the redpolls at LHG in Bellevue yesterday between about 9 and 9:30AM.

Subject: [Tweeters] LHG Bellevue Redpoll update

12 Common Redpolls in the birch cluster in the Lake Hills Greenbelt (LHG) this morning at 0845hrs. Already present and conspicuously in place when I arrived (instant gratification again) but suddenly departed as a noisy group flying east just a couple minutes later.

I dipped on them yesterday (Sunday) as did many who turned out late morning to early afternoon but I see this morning on 'tweeters' that Marv Breece sighted and videoed some at some point during the day. In any event, the Redpolls here like about anywhere anytime are definitely hit or miss but at least this cluster of birches seems to be a 'must hit' for now on their daily circuit. If the Redpolls aren't in these birches just west of the "Teen Center" as previously described, there's a number of other well endowed catkined birches scattered about in the scrubby wooded area northeast of of Larsen Lake which are all adequately viewable although a bit more distant from the paths up that way. Although I've neither seen nor heard any sighting reports from that area this year, those scattered birches were indeed part of the regular circuit during the LHG redpoll visit in Feb-Mar 2013.
