Hi Tweets

Matt Bartells and I substituted for Michael today at Marymoor. The day
started out decent and quickly got really warm. Birding was reasonable for
late July, but we had to work for some birds.

The best bird of the day was a SOLITARY SANDPIPER that was along the
Sammamish River, one of the few times it has been seen at Marymoor.

We wound up with 59 species for the day with some nice views and lots of
young birds around.
