Tweets – it as a marvelous week to be back at Marymoor. The weather was delightful, neither cold nor warm, thin overcast with moments of sunshine, and pretty good birds to greet a great group of friends out birding. And NO RAIN.

Highlights:

Cackling Goose DOZEN+ FLOCKS overhead
- but no definitive Canadas!
Gadwall Male at weir – first since mid-August
Northern Shoveler 5 at lake
Western Grebe One barely visible at lake – First of Fall
Accipiters Many sightings, Sharpie & Cooper’s
BONAPARTE’S GULL Two flew close past the lake platform
Hairy Woodpecker Male in tree at south end of East Meadow
Pileated Woodpecker Female near weir, calling loudly
Small falcon Probably kestrel, flying south
Swallows 2-3 seen, species not determined
Pacific Wren One near old boathouse – First of Fall
Varied Thrush 2-3, First of Fall
Or.-crowned Warbler One southwest of mansion
Common Yellowthroat One near start of boardwalk – late
Fox Sparrow Many, with lots of singing

We also had several deer in the East Meadow pre-dawn, and Lillian saw a Long-tailed Weasel at the dog area green barn (tool shed).

For the day, 62 species.
