Subject: [Tweeters] Wilson's Snipe at Gas Works Park (King County)
There's some kind of shorebird happening at Gas Works Park right now:
a *Wilson's
Snipe*, *Dunlin*, *Spotted Sandpiper*, and seven *Killdeer* are currently
all on the south gravel beach, just east of the viewing platform (as of
10am).

Also today:
There was a *Snow Goose* with the Canada Geese. A *Bald Eagle* tried to
grab a coot, but all 10 coots successfully took cover under the deck of one
of the houseboats as the eagle continuously swooped down.

Yesterday:
There were 4 *American Pipits *on the hill.

Frequently:
Didn't see them today, but every few days there are 1-3 *Townsend's
Warblers *in the pines that run the length of the park.
