Today there was a STILT SANDPIPER on S 204th St in Kent, west of Frager Rd and the horse track. This bird has been there for several days, but positive identification has been elusive due to distance, bad light and blocked views. A scope is almost essential in order to see the bird and morning light is much better. The bird sometimes associates with pectorals, but mostly forages alone in the distant pond. It probes and also spends a lot of time picking at the surface.

Also today at this location:
Cooper's Hawk
Red-shouldered Hawk (since 8.8.22)
American Kestrel - at least 2
Taiga Merlin
Black Merlin
Killdeer - 8
Wilson's Snipe - 1
LB Dowitcher - 4
Pectoral Sandpiper - 7
Stilt Sandpiper - 1
