A few Highlights:

Cooper's Hawk - adult near East 90, Samish Flats
Light Morph Harlan's Hawk - 3 for the day; one was at Farm to Market & Sunset on Samish Flats; 3 light morphs in one day is a first for me
Dark Morph Red-tailed Hawk - Also at Farm to Market & Sunset ( same time as above bird)
Rough-legged Hawk - several on the Samish Flats & one at Hayton Reserve
American Kestrel - 9 for the day; at times this used to be the hardest falcon to find when trying for a 5 falcon day
Prairie Falcon - in a muddy field south of D'Arcy, near Bayview/Edison Rd on the Samish Flats
Peregrine Falcon - 3: West 90, Farm to Market & D'Arcy & one perched along Interstate 5 in Marysville on the way home
Gyrfalcon - 0
Merlin - 0
Northern Shrike - juv north of W90 on Samish Flats
Dunlin: large flock on Samish Flats; also perhaps 10,000 or more at Hayton and non stop murmurations, one after another; BREATHTAKING !!!
