Hi everyone,

I should have mentioned two other good birds at Nisqually today, besides the Chipping Sparrow.  First of all, thanks to the group of birders leaving when I was arriving who alerted me to the general vicinity of each of them. 

The YHBL was in the marshy area between the twin barns and the start of the boardwalk, foraging at the water's edge when I saw it.  The yellow head was really noticeable at distance, even with just binocs. 

The WTSP was on the river side of the boardwalk, a bit closer to the visitors center than the barn end of the trail.  It was working the gravel path in the company of two Golden-crowned Sparrows and flew up for very good looks when I walked by the birds.
