Steve Pink and I visited Eide Road this morning
around 10:00 a.m. There were at least 4 Baird's
Sandpipers on the middle pond. We also had two at
the first pond earlier which may have been the
same at the middle pond. Also present were at
least 2 Greater Yellowlegs, 12+ Lesser Yellowlegs,
2 or more Semipalmated Sandpipers, 5+ Least
Sandpipers and 100+ Westerns and a few Killdeer.
Raptors were a Merlin, 2 Harriers, a Coopers Hawk
and 1 Red Tail. Lots of swallows and Savannah
Sparrows. The mud/water at Eide Road is really
good and I hope it gets checked frequently.
Earlier we visited English Boom on Camano Island
(a really beautiful spot) and had 30+ noisy Purple
Martins, some Least Sandpipers, a Spotted
Sandpiper and 2 adult Bald Eagles in addition to
distant Great Blue Herons.
