A very good day at Nisqually. I found the MacGillivray's Warbler in the
thickets beside the parking lot between the Visitor's Center and the
Education Center. It's head and chest were a dark charcoal gray and the
white eye arcs were clear, dark olive back, yellow beneath. Other warblers
were Orange-crowned, Yellow, and Wilson's as well as Common
Yellowthroats. No Yellow-Rumps for me.
The Lazuli Bunting was seen from the dike trail to the boardwalk. It was
in the new willows/alders/elderberry between the dike trail and the Twin
Barns observation deck. It perched briefly in bright sunshine and flew off
toward the Nisqually overlook.
>From the Twin Barns observation deck, I saw 2 female Hooded Mergansers with
young. Tree, Violet-green, Barn, Cliff, and Rough-winged Swallows were
visible out on the dike. Other birds included several Swanson's Thrush,
Brown Creeper, Marsh Wren, Bushtits, many Rufous Hummingbirds, Song and
No Great Blue Herons today.
