Another nice, sunny day at Marymoor - quite the change after so much Junuary weather thus far.
About 10 of us took part in today’s walk - We’re getting into the summer season for birds - not much new left to move in, lots of young ones and strange calls from young ones.

59 species total [including gull sp]

Canada Goose - notable because after being absent for a couple weeks, we had over 50 on the lake
Black Swift- 6, notable because we don’t often get them when the skies are clear - Jordan got a great pic of one that looks to be an immature [last year’s chick] based on speckled plumage
Caspian Tern - again, several small groups flying north, maybe 12 this week
Lazuli Bunting - about 4 seen nicely in east meadow

Baby Wood Duck, Mallard, Great Blue Heron, American Robin, Dark-eyed Junco, probably others.
Anna’s on nest, Warbling Vireo singing from same area as last week at Rowing Club, presumably on same nest, Black-capped Chickadee entering nest hole

Notable misses:
Rock Pigeon, Green Heron, Belted Kingfisher, Golden-crowned Kinglet
