With Michael out today, Brian Bell & I led the Marymoor walk for a small group of 5 of us.
There was melting snow on the ground, but only a little - mostly we had ice and mud to deal with, and nothing coming down from above — we even saw some blue sky !

It was birdy-er than last week, but not super active after the first hour or so — Nevertheless a good day out.

Highlights:

Wood Duck - pair along the slough, FOY, I think
Greater Scaup - 1 immature - FOY and first scaup of all winter, as well
close looks at 9 Wilson’s Snipe below the weir, getting used to the passing people.
Barn Owl - one, maybe two, giving a good show pre-dawn hunting over the east meadow and dog area
4 woodpecker species — Downy, Hairy, Pileated, and Northern Flicker
Pine Siskin - a flock of ~30 below the weir, FOY
Yellow-rumped Warbler- 1 at the lake viewing platform - FOY

Misses included mergansers, “our” Ring-necked Pheasant, Green Heron, Bushtit, and most finches except Siskin.

For the day, 50 species
