Subject: [Tweeters] Minor Mountain Chickadee dispersal
Hello Tweets,

Maxine Reid's sighting of a Mountain Chickadee in Tulalip Bay yesterday
reminded me of two other recent sightings of Mountain Chickadee in the
Salish Sea area within the past two weeks: one bird at a feeder in
Coquitlam, BC at the beginning of this month; and one at the base of Ediz
Hook in Clallam Co. on October 6th. To me, this seems to indicate a minor
movement of the species into the Puget Sound area, though the cause is not
quite clear. For this reason, I recommend that birders check all their
chickadees especially closely in the coming weeks -- you never know when
you will stumble on that white-eyebrowed, wheezy-voiced individual! Coastal
stands of Douglas firs seem to be a major point of attraction for wandering
Mountains.

Good birding, Joshua Glant
Mercer Island, WA
