I had a chance to be among six birders visiting Windy Gap in southeast King County yesterday, and with the help of other eyes and ears (esp. Jason V. and Will B.), got to see Williamson's Sapsucker, Golden Eagle, Clark's Nutcrackers, Horned Larks, and a quick peek at a fast Prairie Falcon, plus the more usual pipits, Mountain Bluebirds, solitaires, and such.
This morning, yesterday's American Golden-Plover continues at Discovery Park (Seattle), and a couple Horned Larks may or may not be new. (One was seen yesterday.)
The note below is forwarded from the Vancouver, BC, list. Birds migrating over 28,000' (!).

"Interesting article about bird migration. Some species fly much higher than previously thought.
