Tweets - A fine day at Marymoor, with clearing skies and comfortable
temperatures. The morning was marred by aggressive and numerous
mosquitoes, but many birds to admire eased the pain.


- Gadwall - still a couple near the weir, though looking drab and hard
to identify
- Black Swift - about 5 overhead. Again, a bit of a surprise given the
sunny weather
- Rufous Hummingbird - down to 2-3 juveniles in the Pea Patch
- GREATER YELLOWLEGS - adult still mostly in breeding plumage below the
weir. Earliest fall sighting ever
- Ring-billed Gull - one for sure, with another couple likely
- Caspian Tern - again, more than 20
- Great Blue Heron - heronry getting quiet as nesting wraps up
- Western Screech-Owl - Matt saw one around 5:00 a.m. near the Lake
- Belted Kingfisher - two below the weir - first since April
- Hairy Woodpecker - at least one, just south of Dog Central
- Pacific-slope Flycatcher - one heard near start of boardwalk
- American Crow - Matt noted large numbers (200+) roosting predawn near
- Swainson's Thrush - multiple views, including several birds
flycatching from the path (and continually returning to the path)
- Bullock's Oriole - several along slough in the general area of the
heronry. Probably at least 4
- Common Yellowthroat - especially numerous, including several juveniles
- Black-throated Gray Warbler - one heard across the slough from the
- Western Tanager - one heard at Rowing Club

We also had beaver, bunny, bats (predawn), and bullfrog (predawn), as well
as E.g. Squirrel, and Painted Turtle.

Misses today included Hooded Merganser, Rock Pigeon, Green Heron, Red-eyed
Vireo, Cliff Swallow, and Yellow-rumped Warbler

For the day, 63 species.
