Tweets - it was as quiet a day as I can remember in any September this
morning. We had heavy overcast, and warm wet air, though no precipitation
during the walk. We also had no birds, or so it seemed at times. What we
did have was often distant, heard-only, and/or fleeting.


Sharp-shinned Hawk 2 sightings. One sent starlings into a ball
Barn Owl Matt had at least 2, as late as 6:30 a.m.
SHORT-EARED OWL One flew over Pea Patch 7:45 a.m.
Vaux's Swift 2 over mansion
COMMON RAVEN 2nd straight week, over lake platform
Or.-crowned Warbler 1-2
Y.-rumped Warbler Several, all drab
Black-thr. Gray 1-2
Purple Finch Many, some singing
Evening Grosbeak Invisible flyovers

We've only had COMMON RAVEN 20 times at Marymoor, but 5 of those sightings
have been in 2011.

It was a good day for mammal sightings, with COYOTE and MULE DEER as well as
the usual rabbits and squirrels.

Misses for the day: We had no flycatchers or vireos. Also, no Brown
Creeper, Common Yellowthroat, Fox Sparrow, or Lincoln's Sparrow, though
Ollie Oliver sent me photos of a Lincoln's Sparrow from yesterday. He also

For the day, only just 50 species, but at least 53 for the week.
