Delia and I birded Lake Sammamish State Park today for 5 hours. We continue to be impressed by the way State Parks is giving nature a prominent role in the landscaping of this park which is quite more beautiful and more natural than it was, say 5 or 6 years ago. We had a great day, which we posted on ebird.
Black Swifts appeared overhead on two occasions, perhaps there were 9 or more, it was hard to count. There were Hirundines and Vaux's Swifts in the air also.
We came home to a declining migration presence on Butyl Creek, with only 3 warbler species taking baths this evening, Wilson's, MacGillivray's and Yellow. (OK, I'm bragging.)
