Subject: [Tweeters] Bullock's oriole at Marymoor
There was a female Bullock's Oriole just "inland" from the western most dog
swimming area (Wed 24th noonish). I got a good view right next to a very
visible Swainson's Thrush that was persistently singing up a storm. I
whiffed on the Buntings and Kingbirds, but did manage to see 5 new birds
for my Seattle based human(me)-powered year. Personal high points were the
Oriel, best ever views of a Yellow Warbler, Band-tailed Pigeons and
Black-headed Grosbeaks(lots). I cycled out there from the Ravenna area in
Seattle, and by the time I got there the Audubon Loop seemed completely
empty of birders. The Burke-Gilman/Samamish trail was wonderfully empty on
the way out to Marymoor, but irritatingly crowded on the way back. By in
large the dog-walkers we petty good about wearing masks, imo.
