Sharon Aagaard and Stan Wood birded with 7 others at Eastside Audubon's monthly bird walk at Lake Sammamish State Park on January 10, 2014, from 8 am to noon. We had total cloud cover with no rain, 10 mph winds (gusting to 17 mph), with a temp of 47 degrees F. HIGHLIGHTS: Believe it or not, one ROCK PIGEON was a highlight just because we rarely ever see one at the Park. One SHARP-SHINNED HAWK (first of year) perched then flew. The ANNA's HUMMINGBIRDS were everywhere....usually we see one or two during a typical winter walk, but enjoyed 5 today. Just one warbler species was seen traveling in a mixed flock--2 TOWNSEND WARBLERS, our golden, winter jewel. The 3 Swan Geese are still there (since Sep 2012). A fairly quiet, but very nice time at the Park. Some notable misses: Killdeer, Belted Kingfisher, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Bewick's Wren, Fox Sparrow, and House Finch. 44 species for the day; and 44 species for the year. The next bird walk is FEBRUARY 10. No pre-registration, just show up depending on your mood or the weather. Since this is a state park, a Discover Pass is necessary to park ($10 daily, $30 annual). We meet in the large parking lot to the left just inside the main park entrance (not the boat launch entrance).
