Took a walk around Twin Lakes (Federal Way) winter-wonderland earlier today. There were a lot of American Robins and Varied Thrushes around. The Varied Thrushes mainly at the hedge of the property bordering on Treasure Island Park, scratching in the pine needles along the sidewalk on SW 325th Street. With them was a very tame Hermit Thrush! On Lake Lorene the open water held the usual Duck species: Mallard, American Wigeon, Bufflehead, Ring-necked Duck and the continuing single male Canvasback. In addition, a couple of American Coots and a Pied-billed Grebe were also present. I had a nice view of three male diving ducks in my binocular view at the same time: Ring-necked Duck, Bufflehead and Canvasback!
