I've been to Montlake Fill and other Seattle hotspots numerous times and have never seen anything like the bird in the album linked below. I didn't see it in flight, but a friend that was with us said it was flying and landed about 20 feet away from her, which is where I was able to snap photos. We were near the southeast corner of the large pond along the southern portion of the waterfront trail at about 2pm on Sunday. It was crow-sized or a bit larger and looks like a game bird to me, but i don't see any records in eBird for any of those. Can anyone help identify this?
