The Spokane Co WA GREAT-TAILED GRACKLE continues to be seen. From I-90 about
15 miles east of Spokane, take the Liberty Lake. Turn south one block to the
light. Turn left, go to the stop sign. Turn right on Molter Road and head
one block to the intersection of Valleyway and Molter. The grackle can
usually be seen or heard from the intersection. It likes to roost in the
very thick trees nearby. So, if you don't see it, park with windows down and
listen for the eerie calls of which some sound similar to Brewer's
Blackbirds which it hangs out with. Thanks to Ron Dexter for the directions.
WA DeLorme 88, C-8.

At Philleo Lake, Spokane Co WA this past week, Michael Woodruff reports a
good smattering of expected waterfowl and shorebirds, along with a
persistent pair of EURASIAN WIGEONS. From US 195, head west at the Spangle
jct, immediately right onto Jenness Road. After about 2 miles, veer left
toward the lake. WA DeLorme 73, A-5.

On 10 Apr Lisa Hardy reports a second-winter GLAUCOUS-WINGED GULL at Lake
Lenore, Grant Co WA. Doug Schonewald saw it again on 17 Apr, along with the
LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL. Lake Lenore is along WA 17 between Soap Lake and
Coulee City. WA DeLorme 68, A-4 on the crease and 84 and 85, D-4 and 5.

Bob Flores found the resident EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVE in Bassett Park in
