Tweets – it was muggy and overcast, but we had only a very little bit of precipitation this morning, and it was rather birdy and fun.


Gadwall First since early June – 2 flew over Dog Area
Green Heron Juvenile along slough
Cooper’s Hawk Probably the same juvie seen twice
Spotted Sandpiper Two chasing each other near weir
Least Sandpiper One flying circles over Dog Meadow, calling
E. Collared-Dove One west of the slough
Barn Owl One west of park office at 10 A.M. !
Rufous Hummingbird Ruth and Margaret saw 1, Pea Patch
Warbling Vireo 2-3, south end of Dog Meadow
AMERICAN DIPPER Sharon and I saw 1 fly downstream from windmill
Or.-crowned Warbler Maybe 4-5 scattered
C. Yellowthroat 25+, mix of genders and ages
Yellow Warbler 4-5, including some singing
Bl.-thr. Gray Warbler 3-4, scattered, including adult male
Evening Grosbeak 4 flew north over Dog Meadow

We also had a BEAVER in the slough.

This is just the 2nd AMERICAN DIPPER sighting for Marymoor, the other being from October, 2010, I believe.

Misses today included Killdeer, Red-breasted Nuthatch, European Starling, Wilson’s Warbler, and Brown-headed Cowbird.

For the day, 55 species.
