Hi Tweets

We had an excellent day today at Marymoor. Overcast to start but with sun later on. Lots of bird activity today kept us hanging around various spots longer than usual. Matt Bartells and I got to be Michael's representative in his absence. Michael should be back next week.

Notable birds today:

Best bird of the day - Lapland Longspur - apparently first since 2005
Greater White-fronted Goose - 6 imm.
Cackling Goose - first flocks
Horned Grebe on Lake Sammamish
Sharp-shinned and Cooper's Hawks
Barn Owl - early in East Meadow
Vaux's Swift - late
Pileated Woodpecker
Hammond's Flycatcher - unusual for fall
Violet-green Swallow & Barn Swallow - late
Ruby-crowned Kinglet - first of fall
American Pipit - about 25
Orange-crowned Warbler - about 6 with bright yellow variety
Black-throated Gray Warbler - 1 imm. - really crisp plumage
Fox Sparrow - 6

Good Birding,

Brian H. Bell
