We added eight species in March to our 2022 year list, for a year total of 116. They are:
Barred Owl (code 2), at Pine Ridge Park 3-6-22
Tree Swallow (code 3), at the marsh 3-12-22
Violet-green Swallow (code 1), at the marsh 3-13-22
Savannah Sparrow (code 2), 1 at Marina Beach 3-22-22
Eared Grebe (code 4), 2 in the marina 3-30-22

Rufous Hummingbird (code 2), at a feeder in the Edmonds Lake Ballinger neighborhood, quickly followed by two other sightings at Point Edwards and Perrinville.
There were Sanderling (code 2) reports on the waterfront 3-5 and 3-8-22. A Great Horned Owl (code 4) was again heard calling in the Seaview neighborhood, 3-10-22. White-throated Sparrow (code 3) continued to be reported at two private feeders in central Edmonds.
The big miss this year have been Northern Shoveler (code 1). Two were reported at the marsh on 12-30 and 12-31-21 but none since. We have managed to conclude winter with no Eurasian Wigeon (code 3) sighting. None was reported in 2021.
As always, I appreciate it when birders get in touch with me to share sightings, photos, or audio. It helps us build our collective year list. If you would like a copy of our 2022 city checklist, please request it from checklistedmonds at gmail dot com. The 2022 checklist is posted in the bird information box at the Visitor Station at the base of the public pier and is up to date through March.
Abundance codes: (1) Common, (2) Uncommon, (3) Harder to find, usually seen annually, (4) Rare, 5+ records, (5) Fewer than 5 records
