Tweets – Yesterday we faced only a little mizzle, which dampened down the bird activity for a touch, but mostly it was a really nice morning. Fairly birdy too.

Highlights:
a.. American Wigeon – three below weir
b.. Red-breasted Sapsuckers drumming, excavating, flirting
c.. Anna’s Hummingbird – female on her nest along the slough near the start of the boardwalk
d.. Rufous Hummingbird – still no blooming Salmonberry, but already there are several males, displaying
e.. Western Screech-Owl – called from near the “Mysterious Thicket” sign about 6:15am
f.. Hutton’s Vireo – seen, heard again near windmill
g.. Savannah Sparrow – first time we’ve heard them sing at Marymoor this year
h.. American Goldfinch – 2 or 3 males, one singing – First for 2018
i.. Western Meadowlark – at least one singing
Wednesday, I did about a 2 1/4 hour walk at Marymoor and found 5 species we didn’t have today: WESTERN GREBE, VIRGINIA RAIL (heard only), AMERICAN COOT, COOPER’S HAWK, and the first OSPREY of 2018.

For the day, we had 64 species, with 69 for the week. I think the addition of OSPREY and AMERICAN GOLDFINCH gets us to 91 species for 2018.
