The NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRDS reported more than a month ago by Bill and Nancy 
LaFramboise at Horn Rapids County Park north of Richland, Benton Co WA were 
still being observed through 4 Jul according to Dennis Rockwell. The birds 
are apparently carrying food to a possible nest inside dense foliage. Also 
that day Dennis found an EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVE in the park just south of 
the kiosk. From Richland, take WA 240 toward Vernita. The park is located 
just past the Horn Rapids Dam. Turn left toward Benton City to the park 
entrance. The bird has been in the day-use area in the smaller group of 
trees (locust and cottonwood). WA Delorme 39, AB-5.

On 3 Jul Garrett MacDonald and Gina Sheridan relocated the EURASIAN 
COLLARED-DOVE in Washtucna, Adams Co WA. They first spotted it behind the 
Pioneer General Store and eventually followed it to Bassett Park.

The female BROAD-TAILED HUMMINGBIRD first seen 28 May in Walla Walla Co WA 
by several birders was still being seen through 4 Jul according to Mike and 
MerryLynn Denny. The birds were at the Lamb residence about 2 miles up 
Biscuit Ridge Road off US 12 from Dixie. They have a hummingbird crossing 
sign along the road.

A female HARLEQUIN DUCK was in a predictable spot in the middle of the 
Lochsa River more-or-less Idaho Co ID along US 12 near mile marker 167.4 
east of the Powell Ranger Station according to Carole Vande Voorde and Terry 

Good birding.
