June 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. An abbreviated month which didn't get started
until 11Jun so I probably missed a few, among the most likely,
Olive-sided Flycatcher which should have been around during last week or two of May /
first week of June. Any of you LHG "regulars" find Olive-sided Flycatcher
during either May or June??? Anything else missing not on this June list?

cumulative walk time -- 30.3 hrs
