A Red-throated Loon reported 10/28 didn't arrive there on its own power. It
was retrieved somewhere in the region when it landed on a wet parking lot
thinking it was water. Loons can't take off on land. So, it was taken to
the AARK rehab., kept overnight and released at the park.

Also, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Brown Creeper, Golden-crowned &
Ruby-crowned Kinglets, E. Bluebird, Hermit Thrush, Cedar Waxwing, Field
Sparrow, Savannah Sparrow, Swamp Sparrow, E. Towhee, Yellow-rumped Warbler
