Subject: [Tweeters] Tiny's Land (n. Lake Stevens) migrants today Date: Apr 20 10:29:43 2016 From: Scott - scottratkinson at hotmail.com
The warm clear weather continues to bring the northbound songbird migrants. As I write I can hear a PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHER in the deep forest along the entry drive, the habitat there apparently still adequate despite new openings created by the November 2015 storm. More surprising was a W. WOOD-PEWEE that vocalized twice along nearby Sleepy Hollow Rd. at about 7:45 a.m. this morning. The PAC-SLOPE is right in there for an average FOS bird, but the PEWEE is well ahead of average arrival in the first week of May.
