Saturday I birded from Tenino to Ocean Shores. Gorgeous day! The winds on 
the coast progressively decreased to become quite calm by mid-afternoon. 
Highlights among 77 species:
-- 2 White-tailed Kites-Rock Prairie west of Tenino, along Old Hwy 99 in 
small tree opposite (south of) big Dan Dar/Alpaca farmhouse entrance.
-- Meadowlarks singing away (8:45am) in Rock Prairie
-- Rough-legged Hawk-Brady Loop Rd & Foster, west and south of Elma/Satsop
-- Snowy Owls-Damon Point beyond the "pond." Lots of spectators, birders, & 
photographers. (Someone's going to have some great shots with the Olympics 
in the background!)
-- Snow Buntings-several working the cast-up logs well in from the shoreline 
(more good pics--I had one walk up within 25 feet)
-- Rock Sandpiper-several on the jetty with other "rockpipers"
Good birding!
