Hi all,
We had maybe 4 Eared Grebes today on Vashon Island at Tramp Harbor.  With the afternoon sun full on, these birds had fire-red eyes visible even from a great distance.  A half-decent photo I took shows this.
There was a Spotted Sandpiper at the overly-lawn-mowered Lisabeula Park on the Western Side of Vashon.  
We had White-winged Scoters at Quartermaster Bay and a large flock of Common Mergansers there.  
Also, all three Loons, and true-to-form, Brian Pendleton spotted a distant Eurasian in a distant flock of Wigeon at Tramp Harbor.

On Sunday we went to Marymoor and found one Northern Shrike with a telltale red face.
On Saturday at Lake Sammamish we had a Hutton's Vireo and heard but did not see a Bald Eagle, uncharacteristically the only Bald Eagle we've encountered all year. (Should I be happy or sad?)


Photos of the Grebe and the Shrike are the first Sightings blog at ednewbold.com, but you have to scroll down past the photos of Coatis and Bluebirds playing in the snow.

Here's that link:
