Jackie Bowman of Geneva, IL said she and her husband will be visiting
the Seattle area in mid-June, staying in Redmond. A target bird for them
will be Black Swifts. She asked for tips.

I suggest checking the Birder's Dashboard for Washington and clicking on
"Look for a species." Then look under Swift, Black. Up will pop red pins
showing the locations where Black Swift has been seen in the last 14 days.

If a species you're looking for is not shown in the drop-down list, then
that means it has not been seen in the past 14 days. I just looked now
(May 27) and there have been a fair number of sightings of Black Swift,
including in the greater Seattle area.

But the best spot currently looks to be the Dungeness Recreation Area on
the Olympic Peninsula.

The Birder's Dashboard for Washington is at:

Note: Birder's Dashboard shows eBird sightings for Washington, North
America, and the World. Look at the Versions menu for links to the North
America and world versions.
