I was driving on the Rekdal Road on Camano Island yesterday and saw two
Whimbrel in the farmer's field to the east.

We see Whimbrel here just about every year, in the spring, right after the
farmer has mowed the field. Usually, they are in flocks of 30 - 50. They
usually stick around for about a week, but once the grass starts growing,
the Whimrels leave.

Hello Tweeters,

After failing to find White-faced Ibis in previous years,
today we did manage to see the one that has been at the County Line Ponds in
Grant County for several days. There were other birds there too that I
never tire of seeing: American Avocet, Black-necked Stilt, and Wilson's
Phalaropes. Lots of ducks, but they were farther away and I couldn't see
them well.

Tomorrow we're going to look at some other places where the
ibis has been seen recently and see if we can't find another one!

This might be the same flock I noted at Iverson and then English Boom and
also at Barnum Point about 2 weeks ago. If i recall there were about 67 of
which were hand counted.
Thanks

>From late April well into May, the huge Whimbrel flock moves from the bay
visible from English Boom to the Rekdal Road fields and vice versa.B At
times there can be well more than 100 in each place as was my experience on
May 6.B I recently had more than 300 on Rekdal Road and know of reports of
more than 500.B A real spectacle.

We arrived at Ridgefield about 9:30 this morning and noticed the sign about
the cougar sighting yesterday.B Just then a man drove up who had just
completed the loop and showed us two photos of the same tree, the first with
nothing in it, and the second of what looked like a cougar climbing down,
although it was pretty fuzzy.B He said he took the photo at area #10.B He
called it in (phone number is on the sign) and the ranger came out.B By the
time we finished birding the bathroom/bird blind area and got to the Kiwa
trail entrance, it was closed.B The ranger said that the last cougar
sighting was about 100 yards from there.
When we got to that approximate location, there was a jam of cars.B But it
wasn't because of the cougar.B There was a lady in a little red car, who
had been talking to everyone at previous stops like she was an expert or
volunteer or something, blocking the road.B She had gotten out of her car
and gone into the bushes to take pictures of the Great Horned Owls.B She
blocked the road again later in the loop to take pictures.B We later
learned from the real volunteer at the entrance, that Red Car Lady got a
citation for harassing wildlife.B So if you see her, keep an eye on what
she is doing and report any strange activity.
When we got back to the entrance, an update had been posted to the cougar
warning sign.B It said that no one was allowed out of their cars anywhere.B
That included the bird blind and the bathroom next to it, which were now
closed.
