The only shorebirds I saw at M Street in Auburn yesterday (5.11.22) were 7 LEAST SANDPIPERS, a GREATER YELLOWLEGS, a KILLDEER with a chick and a SPOTTED SANDPIPER. In spite of all the rain, the main large pond is dwindling. Last year, Wilson's Phalaropes were there as late as May 19, so as long as the water lasts, it is always a good place to check. Other birds yesterday include an unlikely WESTERN MEADOWLARK near the barn and a WESTERN WOOD-PEWEE along the south fence line. The gate remains locked, but it is possible to park and walk in.

The marsh on S 204th Street in Kent is drying up quickly. I saw no shorebirds at all yesterday. There are still many YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS in the trees along the road. Two days ago (5.10.22) there was a WARBLING VIREO. The only BULLOCK'S ORIOLE sighting I've had so far this spring was along the river at the intersection with Frager Rd on 5.8.22.
