Two SNOWY OWLS were located this past week south of Moses Lake, Grant Co WA. 
On 11 Dec Doug Schonewald found an immature bird between Roads 4 and 5 SE on 
the east side of Road L SE. He found it again on the 12th. On the 12th, he 
found another bird west of Road K. This is their usual haunt. WA DeLorme 69, 
D-6.5 near the bottom of the page.

On 12 Dec, Doug Schonewald reports a female LONG-TAILED DUCK at Perch Point 
on Potholes Reservoir, Grant Co WA. The bird flew but was relocated at the 
large turnout on the O'Sullivan Dam Road (aka WA 262) with the white posts 
guarding the drop-off. To get to Perch Point... from I-90 in Moses Lake, 
take exit 179. Turn south on WA 17 and go about 1 mile, then turn right onto 
Road M SE. Drive about 6 or 6.5 miles and turn right onto Road 6 SE. Go west 
about 3 miles. Here the road goes up a steep hill and turns sharply right 
amongst a village of trailer houses. Just past this sharp right, turn left 
onto an unimproved dirt road toward Potholes Reservoir. Continue on to the 
gravel pit (aka Perch Point or Medicare Beach). Right on the bottom of WA 
DeLorme 69, 6 and 7 or right at the top of page 53, 6 and 7.

On 11 Dec Terry Gray reports 20 LESSER GOLDFINCHES near Lenore, Nez Perce Co 
ID. The birds were along Hanks Grade northeast of Lenore. ID DeLorme 58, 
C-2.5 right at the bottom of the page.

Five BLUE JAYS were in Lewiston, Nez Perce Co ID on 7 Dec near 16th and
