This is Kas Dumroese with the Northern Idaho / Eastern Washington /
Northeastern Oregon bird hotline for Friday, Sep 8 (2000).  This hotline,
sponsored by Palouse Audubon, is updated every Friday evening.

Among the expected shorebirds at Mann Lake, about 3 miles east of the
Lewiston Orchards, Nez Perce Co, ID this past week were a BLACK-BELLIED
PLOVER and an AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER. Keith Carlson found a BLACK-BELLIED
there on Sat Sep 2, along with WESTERN, SEMIPALMATED, LEAST, BAIRD'S, and
PECTORAL SANDPIPERS and a single SEMIPALMATED PLOVER. Also a couple of
CASPIAN TERNS.  In addition to those, Bryan Jamison added an AMERICAN
GOLDEN-PLOVER, AMERICAN AVOCET, LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER, and a SANDERLING on
Tue Sep 5. Every Saturday in September there will be a volunteer birder
leading tours of the reservoir and IDing shorebirds, beginning at 8 am near
the boat launch and continuing through the morning. If you come late, look
for the group. All are welcome. To get to Mann Lake from the north end of
Lewiston, follow US 12 West into town, cross the Clearwater River and
immediately take the first left toward East Lewiston. Turn left again onto
East Main Street and follow it about 0.5 mile to the blinking yellow lights.
Turn right onto Lapwai (aka Lindsay Creek) Road. When the road forks stay
right on Lindsay Creek. When Lindsay Creeks ends at Grelle Avenue, turn left
onto Grelle, and just after Grelle makes a sharp right turn, turn left onto
Powers Avenue. Follow Powers about 1 mile, straight past the grain towers,
to the reservoir. ID DeLorme 54, A-1 and A Birder's Guide to Idaho p 88 (see
the map on p 84).

An ASH-THROATED FLYCATCHER was at Benton Co WA Two Rivers Park on Sun Sep 3
according to Dennis Rockwell. Two Rivers Park is on the south side of the
confluence of the Snake and Columbia rivers near Kennewick WA. WA DeLorme
39, C-8.

And another SANDERLING was seen at Tolo Lake west of Grangeville, Idaho Co
ID on Sep 1 according to Charles Swift, who also saw  an assortment of
shorebirds and a couple of COMMON TERNS. Tolo Lake is about 4 miles west of
Grangeville between US 95 north of Grangeville and US 95 south of
Grangeville. I know that sounds odd, but check the map and you'll see. ID
DeLorme 55, C-4.

If you have any questions about the birds on the hotline, give me a call.
208.883.0943.

Good birding.
