As we walked some of the trails we heard the harsh calls of Steller’s Jays and got our best looks yet of the trip! Then, as we were leaving we saw what we’re identifying from its display as a rufous hummingbird; it was not a lifer for either of us but cool to see again out west. It did a giant loop in flight and would pause at the top. Eventually, it was chased off by another hummingbird.
At Luther Burbank Park we saw our lifer bushtits.
At Lake Sammamish State Park, I saw my lifer mink!
