Hello Tweeters,

From our perch on the hill top above downtown Edmonds we are
seeing a variety of birds in the late afternoon. On Monday afternoon we had
a sizable flock of Red Crossbills moving around through the treetops, for
instance. Yesterday afternoon we watched as about 200 American Robins
heading south. For about 15 minutes they flew, almost continually, in
bunches of 15-20 moving from tree to tree. The afternoon sun was catching
their red breast and turning them into little torches as they flew by,
calling and singing. I'm assuming they were migrating. But were they
migrating from? Canada? Or our nearby mountains?
