Hi Tweeters,

The Long-billed Curlew briefly showed up at Hayton preserve on Fir Island
today around noon. It flew in, fed for a couple minutes, and departed
north-west. Also nice to see fourteen Pectoral Sandpipers. The
White-throated Sparrow from yesterday and Black Phoebe were found at Wiley
Slough, also nice to see a Short-billed Dowitcher with its more expected
counterparts, a few flyover Snow Geese, Cinnamon Teal clinging on, and a
surprise flyby flock of Red-breasted Mergansers. A Merlin grabbed one out
of the many Yellow-rumped warblers in the area. Down at the Everett Sewage
Lagoons, three Eared Grebe were a nice surprise for us, also a male
Bufflehead, rising duck numbers (~500 Ruddy, ~800 Shoveler's) and a
juvenile Bonaparte's Gull, always nice to get close looks at them. A good
day, always fun to bird with Nancy and Inge.
