I found a male Yellow-headed Blackbird on a fencepost in the
flooded pastures west of Veazie-Cumberland Road, north of Enumclaw this
afternoon. This is likely the area a Black-necked Stilt was reported on
April 19th. This is a great close-in birding area. Also seen were 3 pairs
of Cinnamon Teal, lots of Green-winged Teals, Mallard, American Wigeon,
Northern Shoveler, Northern Pintail, Gadwall, American Coot, Greater
Yellowlegs, Great Blue Heron Canada Goose, Barn - and Tree Swallows and
Red-winged Blackbirds. Previously seen there were Bufflehead, Ring-necked
Duck and Lesser Scaup.
This area looks good for American Bittern, Blue-winged Teal, rails and
maybe Wilson's Phalarope.

Someone previously posted directions, but here is my short version:

>From Auburn go south on RT. 164 (no stopping at the casino); turn left

(east) at SE 400th St -(just prior to the White River Amphitheater). It
eventually will turn into SE 392nd St after the light in Kraig. When SE
392nd St ends at Veazie-Cumberland Road, turn left (south). The wetlands
are about a mile south just before a curve. There is a wider parking spot
for 2 - 3 cars at a street sign there. I would not suggest to stop prior to
that - it is a very busy road!

>From Enumclaw: Go east on SR 410 and turn left/north at the light to SE

284th St. This will eventually turn into Veazie-Cumberland Road.

Good Birding!
