This morning (3.18.18) I could not find a bluebird along Shorts School Road in Snohomish County. However, there was 1 male MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD at 407th Ave NE, barely north of Hwy 503 (Arlington?) working both sides of this dead end road. Thanks to those who have discovered and reported these bluebirds.

There wasn't much else of any consequence until I arrived at Hayton Preserve on Fir Island in Skagit County. While doing a 360 degree scope from atop the dike, I noticed a very distant perched bird in a snag to the NE that looked like it could have been a peregrine or a gyr. Long story short. When I finally found the snag amidst a copse of conifers along Dry Slough Road, it turned out to be an adult GYRFALCON. What a nice surprise. I'll put up some photos tomorrow.

It was a good day.
