Dear Tweeters,
 
It was a nice weekend for birding in Skagit County. Here are some highlights.
 
BLUE GOOSE: one adult today (6 October) at Jensen Access, with about 2000 Snow Geese.
 
White-fronted Goose: 80 at the West Ninety and about a hundred on Fir Island.
 
Cackling Goose: twenty or so on Fir Island.
 
Turkey Vulture: two at dusk this evening, at DeBay's Slough.
 
Black-bellied Plover: a few dozen each today at the West Ninety and on Fir Island.
 
PACIFIC GOLDEN PLOVER: one this afternoon at Hayton Reserve.
 
Orange-crowned Warbler: one yesterday at Illabot Creek habitat improvement site, along Rockport-Cascade Road where it crosses the creek.
 
Common Yellowthroat: one female yesterday, with the Orange-crowned Warbler along Illabot Creek.
 
Western Meadowlark: two yesterday in the clearcut just west of Barnaby Slough; 8 or so today at the West Ninety.
 
Also, I report a bit tardily that the Black-headed Grosbeak came back to my feeder near Lyman on October 2, my latest ever.
 
Yours truly,
 Gary Bletsch

"Nun," sagte ich, "wenn ich ein Taugenichts bin, so ist's gut, so will ich in die Welt gehen, und mein Glueck machen." Und eigentlich war mir das recht lieb, denn es war mir kurz vorher selber eingefallen, auf Reisen zu gehen, da ich die Goldammer, welche im Herbst und Winter immer betruebt an unserm Fenster sang: "Bauer, miet' mich, Bauer, miet' mich!" nun in der schoenen Fruehlingszeit wieder ganz stolz und lustig vom Baume rufen hoerte: "Bauer, behalt' deinen Dienst!"
