Hi Tweets

Michael is in Paris and then the Czech Republic, and Matt is away, so Sharon
Aagard and I substituted at Marymoor this morning. It is definitely summer,
although it started out at 57 degrees this morning with ground fog . It
burned off quickly and got warm (well 82 degrees hot) by the finish.

It was a good day with lots of juveniles and lots of weird "songs" and

A couple of American Coots at the lake (they have been scarce recently)

2 Spotted Sandpipers near the weir

3 Band-tailed Pigeons
