A flock of 12 SURF SCOTERS and 6 WHITE-WINGED SCOTERS were seen off the City

Good birds were seen around Lewiston, Nez Perce Co ID. On 16 Oct Terry Gray

and the male EURASIAN WIGEON continues to persist at the big levee pond. On
19 Oct Jay Carlisle saw 2 SURF SCOTERS, CACKLING GEESE, and a NORTHERN
