I stopped by Marymoor late this afternoon to walk my dog and brought my camera along. As I walked along the slough I saw 2-3 Spotted Sandpipers that I tried to photograph. Then I saw something much more surprising – a Pectoral Sandpiper. I got very excited, took about 200 photos and sent my wife running to get my phone at home so I could post on Tweeters in case anyone else wanted to see the bird. She begrudgingly agreed to do it.

Well, after she brought me my phone and as I prepared to send a note to Tweeters I saw that I was late to the game. The bird had been seen and reported. Repeatedly. C’est la vie but awesome bird for Marymoor regardless.

The photos didn’t turn out great with pretty strong sunlight from the wrong direction but I got a few that are half decent. You can find them here: https://flic.kr/s/aHsm1zKspV
