[Tweeters] suggestions for Snohomish area

The best birding in the town of Snohomish I’ve found so far is my back yard
which has three different kinds of feeders. Given that that’s not an
option, there’s a short nature trail near the west end of 1st street which
goes down to the Snohomish river and by the STP. There’s a marshy area off
to your right as you go in. The entrance to the trail is at 47°54'48.1"N
122°06'18.9"W. You’ll probably have to park at the visitors center at the
corner of 1st and D then walk the ¼ mile to the path.

The Centennial Trail is a good place to get exercise but not to bird.

Good luck and let us know how you did.

Hi tweets,

My wife and I have an errand to run up in Snohomish tomorrow, and she's
recovering from some eye surgery so is not up for a strenuous hike -- does
anyone have suggestions for decent birding, or a pleasant amble, in the
Snohomish area? Thanks for any tips!

On a more tweety note, we have a local crow who seems to have lost his/her
mind. Whenever anyone from our house steps outside it becomes hysterical,
cawing and cawing -- but all the other crows in the neighborhood just ignore
him/her. Doesn't seem to have a local baby, it just looks wildly around
cawing. What? Maybe a local critter - a cat, or a raccoon, maybe - took the
baby crow, and it's blaming us for the loss? Who knows?
