Seems way early for such, but such it was, one lone GREATER WHITE-FRONTED
GOOSE standing out all by it's elegant lonesome right smack in the middle
of the NE corner farm field at 156th Ave SE & SE 16th St(Bellevue) this
morning. Even a low flyover flock of ~35 Canada Geese didn't give it reason to
flinch, nor did the flyover Green Heron being escorted along by 2-3 Anna's
Hummingbirds, nor the flyover Merlin either. In fact, 2 hrs later, that
GWFG was still there having hardly moved at all. Otherwise, slow morning,
no migrant types at all other than a few Swainson's Thrushes; only 1 Cedar
Waxwing, and NO warblers, vireos, flycatchers, swallows, tanagers,
grosbeaks, zip! 2.0hrs, 27 species.
