Tweets – just a quick note (I’ll send my full report in a few), but our big surprise today was a gorgeous LONG-TAILED JAEGER that flew a couple of circles over the Dog Meadow at about 8:30 a.m. before lazily flying off towards Lake Sammamish.

In mid-September, 2008, we had a quick fly-over jaeger which we had left as Parasitic/Long-tailed. That was the only previous jaeger for the park list. Today’s bird had an incredibly long tail, and was graceful, slim, and long-winged.

This was a King County life bird for both Matt Bartels and myself, as we both edge close to 300 species for the county.
