Hey tweets, the SWAMP SPARROW took advantage of the warm sun today to
forage out into the open and pretend it had never heard of the word
"skulking." The bird is in beautiful breeding plumage now, just a
gorgeous creature. Today it was back at Kern's Restoration Pond, south
of South Blue Forest. This is very near where it was spotted in January.

Also on view today:
• 2 male Northern Pintails asleep on SW Pond
• Brown Creeper in the alder forest sw of the kiosk
• Pacific Wren in Leaky Pond
• lots of Wood Ducks in breeding plumage, on the mud island near the
crewhouse at Conibear
• Belted Kingfisher in Yesler Cove
• some 50 Common Mergansers in a raft on the lake
• Bald Eagles have mated and are getting ready to produce eggs
• Barn Swallow foraging over Hoyt Meadow and the Lagoon.

A great (!) day. - Connie, Seattle
