On 23 Sep Trent Bray found 4 SABINE'S GULLS at the La Grande waste water 
treatment ponds near La Grande, Union Co OR. The ponds are off limits on 
weekends; check in at the office first during weekdays.

LAPLAND LONGSPURS were observed in Spokane Co WA by Jim Acton and others 
last week. The birds were visiting small puddles along the road caused by 
the irrigation systems. The birds were along Ladd Road between Hallett and 
Thorpe, about 3 miles south of US 2 and about 2 miles east of the county 
line. See WA DeLorme 88, D-2.

Two SURF SCOTERS were seen at the sewage ponds east of Sprague, Lincoln Co 
WA on 23 Sep according to Theresa Mathis and Terry Little.

WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS were located in WA and ID on 25 Sep. Randy Hill 
reports one in his yard in Othello, Grant Co WA and Bettie and Ray Hoff saw 
one in their yard in Moscow, Latah Co ID.

At Mann Lake, east of Lewiston, Nez Perce Co ID, Keith Carlson reports a 
GREAT EGRET and a BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER on 20 Sep. The egret was still there 
on 24 Sep, but Terry Gray reports an AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER had replaced the 
BBPL. From the north end of Lewiston, follow US 12 south into town, cross 
the Clearwater River on Memorial Bridge and immediately take the first left 
(east) toward East Lewiston. Turn left (east) onto East Main Street and go 
about a half mile to the flashing yellow lights. Turn right (south) onto 
Lapwai (a.k.a. Lindsay Creek) Road. When the road forks stay right on 
Lindsay Creek Road (Nez Perce County Road 460) and follow it about 5 miles 
to its terminus at Grelle Avenue. Turn left (east) onto Grelle Avenue and 
just past the sharp right curve, turn left (east) onto East Powers Avenue 
(a.k.a. Lapwai Road). Continue straight (east) past the grain towers to the 
main parking lot. ID DeLorme 54, A-1.

A BARRED OWL was visiting the yard of Tom Besser at the base of Moscow 
Mountain, just north of Moscow, Latah Co ID, over the weekend.

Good birding.
