I spent this past weekend birding a variety of locations in southeastern
Washington. Some brief highlights are below. Id like to write a longer
description of the trip, but doing that would probably delay my post at
least another day or two. It was an amazing weekend, with some really cool
birds. The flock of geese on Corfu Rd was a definite highlight many
thousands of birds, with 5 species of geese in the flock!
1 adult at various spots around Central Ferry / Port of Garfield along the
Snake River on 4/1 this bird followed me from Port of Garfield to Central
Ferry Park, and then to the backwater of the Snake along Lower Deadman Rd
east of Hwy 127. It kept flying in and landing in front of me.

1 with a small group of Canada Geese at Swallows Park near Clarkston, 4/1
