Point No Point – Tuesday, October 19, 2010

There are really good days of birding and then the unbelievable days.  Today was one of those as we saw the Parasitic Jaegers, the Scrub Jay, a Northern Shrike and a Rock Wren.  Many of us watched the Parasitic Jaegers flying with the Gulls through the scope.  What a bird.  We actually watched and heard the Shrike singing its song-hearing him sing was a first for some of us.  The Rock Wren was a real surprise as it was on the beach out of it usual habitat.  At first we thought we were seeing a pipit, but looking through the scope helped with the final Identification.

 Snohomish and Area – Tuesday October 26, 2010

It was a rainy windy day but we persisted on bird watching and had some good sitings including a Peregrine Falcon, Kestrels, a Cooper’s Hawk and Snipe. One member even saw a Ring-necked pheasant as he was driving to the parking lot. We found a Townsend’s Warbler in a backyard as we stopped at a stop sign. Snow Geese flew over the river

Fir Island – November 2, 2010

November 2 was our last day of summer this year.  Birdwatching was wonderful with the weather in the high 60’s and a bright sunny day.  We had great views of shorebirds at Wiley Slough including dowitchers and yellowlegs.  Dunlin were flying over marshlands.  We saw a few swans and lots of snow geese.

Blaine to Birch Bay – Tuesday November 9, 2010

The day before and the day after we birded at Birch Bay the weather was sunny and great, but this Tuesday was a challenge with the rainy, windy day decreasing the number of birds that we found.  We were glad to see the Long-billed Dowitchers, Yellowlegs and Dunlin.  The Long-tailed ducks were at Birch Bay as were the Harlequin ducks.  We spotted one lonely Horned Lark at the Blaine harbor.  We also found the Black Scoters at Semiahmoo.  We had a great view of the Pileated Woodpecker at Wilma’s cabin

  North Everett to South Marysville – Tuesday November 30, 2010

Not many of us braved the weather today as we were to be having rain with winds to 50 miles/hour, but we lucked out with minimal wind and a light rain.  Not a bad day to bird at all.  The best sighting of the day was seeing the Townsend’s Warbler at the park in Everett while waiting for all of us to meet.  We also enjoyed seeing some Common Snipe.  The ducks did not fail to please with lots of variety at the Marysville sewage lagoons.  Bird count is only for ½ of a day as all but three of us had to leave at Noon on this day.

 Samish Flats – Tuesday December 7, 2010

It is always a great trip to Samish at this time of year to see the Rough-legged Hawks and the Peregrine chasing after the Dunlin.  We got to see our first Tundra Swans of the season and there were lots to see in the field that we stopped at.  We also found the Eurasian Teal at Bow.  We also found a good number of Black-bellied Plovers that were really good with blending into the brown soil.  It was also a treat to find the very quiet and hidden Hermit Thrush at the park.

Lummi Island - Tuesday December 14, 2010
It was a typical day in December at Lummi today with the wind blowing and the rain coming down and the best part of this is that the raptors love to soar in this weather. We saw many Harriers and Red-tailed Hawks, but only one Rough-legged Hawk. Some were lucky enough to see a Prairie Falcon and snipe. We enjoyed the Western Meadowlarks. We ate lunch watching the Surf and White-winged Scoters and Goldeneyes over the bay as the rain poured down so after lunch we came home for a short birding day.
