Since it promised to be a lovely day, we went for a walk on the Fobes-Ebey Slough Dike Road Trail, not far from Snohomish this morning. Phil Dickinson had already noted that he had seen an Eastern Kingbird there, so finding that bird was an added incentive. The trail has Ebey Slough on the north side, flanked by some mixed evergreen deciduous forest. On the south side, there are wet swampy fields and a few shallow lakes, which probably dry up my mid-summer. We walked slowly along the trail for about 2 hours and found 4 Eastern Kingbirds. We got photos of three. There were lots of the other birds you would expect to find in such a place: Wood ducks, many Bald Eagles, Cedar Waxwings, Black-headed Grosbeaks, and Common Yellowthroat. I've attached a link to our Ebird checklist, which has photos of the birds we saw.
