I didn't hear back if anyone else saw this pair. I suspect people must have tried to see it since BNST are a King County code 5 bird.
Here's a quick photo I uploaded from this morning.

This morning at about 8am I saw a pair of Black-necked Stilts. The were in some standing water just 150 yards North of 200th St on South Center Parkway. They were in the standing water that is on the East side of South Center Parkway. They were still there when I left at 8:30am
GPS location is 47.425552,-122.269893
Also, in the standing water were Least Sandpipers, a few Western Sandpipers and a Greater Yellowlegs.
Down on 204th St due South I did see a pair of Long-billed Dowitchers in a field inside a horse track.
This is a fun time of year for sure.
