I did not see them, but it would not necessarily be surprising. There are 2-4 pairs that migrate to/nest in Reifel, up near Delta, BC.

Sent from Apple's iPhone; I'm just leasing it.

> Hi all,

> Delia and I birded Lake Sammamish State Park today for 5 hours.? We continue to be impressed by the way State Parks is giving nature a prominent role in the landscaping of this park which is quite more beautiful and more natural than it was, say 5 or 6 years ago.? We had a great day, which we posted on ebird.

> Black Swifts appeared overhead on two occasions, perhaps there were 9 or more, it was hard to count. There were Hirundines and Vaux's Swifts in the air also.

>

> We came home to a declining migration presence on Butyl Creek, with only 3 warbler species taking baths this evening, Wilson's, MacGillivray's and Yellow.? (OK, I'm bragging.)

>

> Best wishes,

> Cassin's Vireo heard/sighted yesterday.? Near the north end of Barnes Rd just before the Lewis County line there is an access road running west into the DNR forest where bird was heard. Being poor at identifying birds by sound, took a chance and played a recording for a Cassin's Vireo.? Bird immediately started repeating back the recording and flew into view. Reason for guessing Cassin's Vireo - in May 2015 Russ Koppendrayer found Cassin's Vireo at this location and I re-found it a day later.? Memory of that sighting made me think wouldn't it be interesting to find the bird here again!? Only my second sighting of a Cassin's Vireo in Cowlitz county.
