[Tweeters] migrant Pacific-slope Flycatcher in Seattle

As part of our beginner banding class, Puget Sound Bird Observatory banded a Pacific-slope Flycatcher Aug 27th and recaught it Aug 28th, near the Willow Creek Hatchery in Edmonds. So it was staying in nice tall trees with plenty of water running nearby. We also caught a Yellow Warbler and an Orange-crowned Warbler August 28th.

The cooler weather may have gotten the migration going a little stronger. I know that both Sunday evening and Monday evening, I had 4 Black-headed Grosbeaks chowing down on my high-quality seed--that should give them a good start on their migrations.
