Hi all — I hung out at westcrest park (Seattle, king county) beginning at 515 this morning— no singing ovenbird to be found in about 45 min of listening

Might still be worth a visit later in the morning to mirror the time Ed heard it yesterday, but the odds are long for a day two re-find

>> I heard a singing, out of range, Ovenbird at 1000 this morning in Westcrest Park. I've birded extensively in Cape May County, NJ, so this is a familiar bird for me. Just to make doubly certain I pulled up the ovenbird call on my phone and matched it to the live singing bird.


>> Directions - Park on Cloverdale SW & 5th in or near the off-leash area parking lot. Walk to the east end of Cloverdale and enter the park thru a gate. Turn left and walk about 75 feet to a run down fence. Take the right fork, go about 150 ft and start listening. On the left side of the trail there is snow-drift fencing enclosing the area where the bird was heard. If you get to the chainlink fence enclosing buildings that service the resesrvoir, you've gone too far. Good luck, these skulkers are much easier heard than seen.
