Hi Tweets,

Here's a copy and paste of my eBird report.....

Sharon and Stan were joined by 13 other birders on October 5, 2018 for Eastside Audubon's monthly bird walk at Lake Sammamish State Park. Weather was cloudy with a light, steady drizzle during most of the walk, 49-52F, 1-3 mph winds. The species count was 40, 130 for the year

HIGHLIGHTS:
**3 grebe species.....Pied-billed, Horned and Western
**a female or immature Northern Harrier (couldn't see the underside, and it was distant) flew out of a grassy patch at the mouth of Tibbetts Creek, headed north above the tree line, then circled back and disappeared in a westerly direction
**2 Spotted Sandpipers
**a swallow migration was continually overhead thoroughout our walk, mostly Violet-greens and some Barns
**to name some, Pacific Wrens, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Varied Thrushes & Double-crested Cormorants are back for the winter
**a Swainson's Thrush was feeding on berries with American Robins and Cedar Waxwings
**a male and female Black-throated Gray Warbler were feeding in a good-sized mixed flock, with both Myrtle and Audubon's Yellow-rumped Warblers

The next bird walk is NOVEMBER 5, 2018, 8am to noon. This is a state park and a Discover Pass is required to park here ($35 annual or $10 daily).
40 species (+4 other taxa)
