Hello Tweets,

I spent most of the morning with Adrian Lee at Juanita Bay Park. There was
a nice mix of summer and winter birds that combined for an incredible day.

Highlights:
Greater White-fronted Goose - flock of 25 headed north
Eurasian Wigeon - Very orangy individual with large coot flock
Ruddy Duck - 7 with small group of coots out in lake
Sora - Juvenile off of East Boardwalk
Pectoral Sandpiper - One in small cove between boardwalks
Wilson's Snipe - 11 on north side but a couple near Pectoral
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker - Female feeding on western side of park in
poplars just south of the farthest west boardwalk.
Willow Flycatcher - 1 in shrubs with Hammonds and Pacific-slope at start of
East Boardwalk
Varied Thrush - 3 throughout park
Macgillivray's Warbler - giving chips near YBSA spot
Fox Sparrow - 8 including flock of 7 at south end of park
Lincoln's Sparrow - 12 with most in brushy area next to East Boardwalk
White-throated Sparrow - One at south end with sizable zono flock and Fox
Sparrows
Western Tanager - Female at south end along with a heard only bird

Unfortunately the Saspucker seemed to disappear around 11:15. There was a
decent number of people looking when I left at 1:20 so hopefully it can be
seen again.

Easily my best day at Juanita with 5 new park birds and 86 species in
total. Hopefully the fall can continue to crank out great days!
