Dear Tweeters,
 
Today, 7 September 2013, several good birds turned up in Skagit County--although probably not good enough to take people away from Upland Sandpipers and Lesser Sandplovers, and all the other good stuff down in SW Washington!
 
At Corkindale was a Vesper Sparrow, as well as a  Golden-crowned Sparrow. The Golden-crowned was my earliest ever in Skagit, by one day.
 
Marblemount Boat Launch was hopping with migrants, including a Red-eyed Vireo, at least two Cassin's Vireos, several Warbling Vireos, a Hammond's Flycatcher, and so forth. There were lots of warblers and Savannah Sparrows.
 
At the Van Horn Ponds was another Vesper Sparrow.
 
The best find of the day was at March Point: 23 Common Terns! They were elegant, but not Elegant. No jaegers showed up to bother them.
 
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!"
