Tweets – I just left Marymoor Park (Redmond, King Co.), where there were FOUR male MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRDS at the north end of the East Meadow. If you don’t find them there, I’d look to the east around the model airplane field. I did not see these birds earlier in the morning, so they may have flown in on this gorgeous day.

The park was also full of woodpeckers; I saw the five usual species include 2-3 pairs of RED-BREASTED SAPSUCKER.

Some of the GREAT BLUE HERONS are sitting down on the nests, instead of standing atop them. The ANNA’S HUMMINGBIRD was sitting in her nest south of the dog area. I found a pair of CHESTNUT-BACKED CHICKADEES excavating a hole in a big cottonwood a little north of the boardwalk, and a NORTHERN FLICKER excavating a hole in a dead hemlock west of the mansion.

For all my thermometer said 49 degrees, it felt more like 60+, and definitely felt like spring.
