A single ash-throated flycatcher was observed and photo'd near the loop
trail on the southwest corner of center pond (in the scrub just west of
the drainpipe under the path). It was also atop the single trees on the
grassy knoll towards the osprey nest. Mutually observing, photographing
and surging adrenalin were Inge Watson and Chris xx.

Current hotspot reports show them only appearing around Yakima.
WABirder's King Co list gives them a Rare (5+).

Also, a yellow-headed blackbird female, first spotted last Sunday, was
seen this morning in the same general area (grassy knoll and SW center
pond).
