If any of you have Little Z contact you and say he's in town and do you want to go birding somewhere, say yes. That's all.

Not related to that, here are some photos from Mountlake Fill today.

Day 2 of the Kenai Bird Festival. I worked most of the day. Three hours at the information nest directing people to events and four hours on the birding platform for our 24 hour Big Sit. The 24 hour Big Sit is a first in Alaska. I had heavy wind and about 35 degree temperatures. It was hard to take photos in the wind. I saw 42 species in my four hours and had 14 people stop by to look at what I was seeing. This morning at 8:00 AM it was snowing! We are having a very slow Spring this year.

Day Three of the Kenai Bird Festival was the conclusion. We had a potluck picnic at a beautiful home and cabin property on the Kenai River. We finally got lucky with the weather, sunshine, light breeze and 55 degrees. It was fun to eat, talk and continue to look at birds. If any of you would like to attend next year's event I have an RV as a guest room and I would be happy to have you.

This was a big one for me, and I was on my bicycle. Beautiful and it was the best view I've ever gotten of one. I wonder if it's an irruption year for them. Alot of people are seeing/hearing them in Seattle and surroundings now, and I don't remember them being common before.

I don't recall Lazulis in Seattle BITD, which doesn't really mean anything.

I found a Spotted Owl hood this weekend, though no sighting. Stay tuned.
The owls have a guardian...

I didn't try to pet her as I normally would.

I saw 4 birds foraging at the HBCP and couldn't find them in any N. American bird book. I did see one last year and was able to id it but that didn't help this time. I had to post them in the "mystery birds" folder on the rba and get some help.
Anyone?
I was thinking of them as "Sparrow Finches!"

Might be an immature White Crowned?? But that bill is very red??

Here are my mystery birds.

Was leaning towards a Calliope on this one. JT Cottonwood springs. Very small hummer.

Not exotic, but a first-time bird feeder visitor this afternoon - Male Western Tanager. My feeders have been some of the best birding of the season for me.

Beautiful photos everyone!
