Hi Tweets,

I saw my first 2021 peeps for the Edmonds marsh this morning, sixteen Least Sandpipers. They are the expected first arrivals any time on or around April 20th. (Typically a few Westerns appear within several days.) There were also three Greater Yellowlegs and an intermittently continuing single Dunlin that is now showing its breeding plumage. Two Savannah Sparrows and an American Pipit could be seen in the mud. Aerialists included three Violet-green Swallows and two Tree Swallows. The Violet-greens were paying attention to the nest box that that species has used each year since we installed five boxes throughout the marsh.
