Tweets – it was a pleasant morning to walk around today, as the overcast kept the temperatures down in the ‘60’s. No bright glare either. We are officially in The Summer Doldrums, but even the doldrums are good at Marymoor.

Highlights:

Canada Goose Actually saw one this week :)
Great Blue Heron Almost all the nests empty
Green Heron 2 sightings – same juvenile both times?
MERLIN Caused quite the uproar amongst swallows
Purple Martin Next exchanges at Lake Platform gourd
Tree Swallow Still active at 1 nest; overall, very few
Violet-green Swallow Close to 100
Barn Swallow Close to 100
Y.-rumped Warbler Extremely drab juvenile
Bl.-thr. Gray Warbler 1-2
Lazuli Bunting 2-3 juveniles near Compost Piles, early

I also saw a MINK on the far shore of the slough, a bit above the weir.

For the week, 59 species.
