Today 40 of us enjoyed a nice walk at Nisqually. It was cool and dry and the sun came out after a bit but it wasn't very birdy, at least not in the number of species seen. We had a -1.7 low tide at 1:34 PM so lots of mud at the reclamation area.
The trees are all leafed out and the grass is high so we heard a lot of twittering but had difficulty viewing. We did have lots of YELLOW WARBLERS, SWAINSON'S THRUSHES, and MARSH WRENS, but nothing out of the ordinary.
With the low tide I don't know if anyone walked the estuary boardwalk but Shep will post an ebird report when he finishes.
For the day I had 37 species with BAND-TAILED PIGEON being new for the year. I now have 105 species for the year. Mammals seen included LONG-TAILED WEASEL, COTTONTAILED RABBIT, and MUSKRAT.
