I've been looking for a way to scope Lake Washington from the south tip of Mercer Island for a little while, and just yesterday I found a public dock on Google Maps with an expansive view of the water. Inspired by recent Cedar River reports, I was excited to check it out this afternoon, and I was not disappointed!
In my 50 minutes of watching, I spotted a whole bunch of Western Grebes, one Common Loon and a flock of 21 Bonaparte's Gulls very distantly to the southwest, all but two of them sitting on the water. I look forward to further surprises on subsequent visits throughout the winter!
With the addition of Common Loon and Bonaparte's Gull, my Mercer Island list now stands at 105.
Good birding, Joshua Glant
Mercer Island, WA
