Today 12 of us walked Nisqually in variable conditions. It was pleasant at
the start but turned into sideways rain by the time we got to the twin
barns and then turned mild again. The birds were as skittish as the weather.

Not much unusual today...except for a NORTHERN HARRIER that tries to catch
a GREEN-WINGED TEAL on the pond behind the twin barns. The TEAL escaped.

We did see a couple of TREE SWALLOWS just before the rains blew in and
there was the usual collection of waterfowl about the refuge.

There is an adult GREAT HORNED OWL sitting in the nest tree as it has been
for the last couple of week. No evidence of young yet.

For the day I had 40 species and still have 71 for the year. The only
mammal I saw was a couple of GRAY SQUIRRELS.

Until next week, when I hope for better weather...
