April 2013 report summary for Lake Hills Greenbelt (LHG), Bellevue. This
is an easy flat 3.5 mile loop walk, between Phantom Lake and Larsen Lake,
156th & 148th Avenues SE and SE 24th to Main Streets, an interesting
'island' of mediocrity in the residential 'mediocrity' of southeast Bellevue. The
number following the species are the number of times (days/walks) that the
listed species was observed. I kind of outdid myself this month, 29 out
of 30 days. Don't expect same levels of intensity in May.
