Hi Tweets - Just returned from a gala 2-day to Neah Bay. Weather was extremely benign with frosty mornings and sunny, wind-free days. Highlights were a Black-Legged Kittiwake at the gull washing creek mouth and the continuing Tropical Kingbird, finally located this morning in shrubs, and later on wires in the vicinity of 1st and Lincoln. This is just behind the Bayview and Lincoln feeder house where this morning and again in the early afternoon, the errant and much-discussed Eurasian Tree Sparrow offered great looks - I think Ann Marie even got some photos. Despite these nice FOY, the best part of the trip were two wonderful, sunny, wind- and people-free walks on Hobuck Beach (yesterday, with Pipets, Snow Bunting, and Palm Warblers), and Tsoo-Yess Beach (today with Pipets, Palm Warbler, and rock pipers - Surfbird, Black Turnstone, Black Oystercatcher). About 4 miles total with no sandblasting!! Only disappointment of the trip was our inability to locate the Swamp Sparrow, Rusty Blackbird, and Orchard Oriole reported around town in recent days. Happy Birding - Jon Houghton, Edmonds
