I had 3 Barn Swallow on Sunset Avenue about 9:30 AM this morning but have
not gotten them in eBird yet.
Just adding this time point as perhaps they will be persistent for a while.

I also saw 7 Black Scoter, a Common Murre and a distant Brandt's Cormorant.

I stopped at several spots this morning to bird the northern part of the
Edmonds waterfront. My last stop was Sunset Avenue, just north of the ferry
dock. I was starting to put my scope back in the car at 10:45 am when two
BARN SWALLOWS flew by, circled to hawk insects, and then continued north by
northeast. I noticed the distinctive flight pattern first and then saw them
through my binoculars as they circled around a house on Sunset. I noted dark
uppers, whitish undersides, and their characteristic long, forked tails.

It has been at least several years since we saw one overwintering Barn
Swallow at the marsh. That was a February sighting, if I recall correctly.
