On Friday, March 8th, Stuart Johnston and Bob McKenzie, observed a
nonbreeding plumage Black-bellied Plover at the Conboy Lake National
Wildlife Refuge, near Glenwood. The bird was observed again at the same
location
( 75 meters east of Laurel Road and 1.3 miles north of the BZ-Glenwood
Road intersection) on Sunday, 3/10, by Lauren Braden, Melissa Keigley,
Stuart Johnston and me.

In addition, during the last week, evidence that the Spring shorebird
migration is underway include the observation two Greater Yellowlegs, and
100 Dunlin in Klickitat County.

Besides the shorebird movements, wildflowers in the Columbia Gorge are
beginning their annual display.

Happy birding,
