After running into Marv Breece at Stillwater this afternoon and lamenting
that there have been no further reports of the Chat recently, I stopped by
the last known location (the clearing just before the first bridge south -
toward Carnation - from the main parking area at Stillwater) and played the
tape. There was a very distant reply from the west. And then I heard it -
another Chat calling from the EAST side of the trail, followed by the
response from the WEST side. They called back and forth for about 10
minutes and the commotion got louder and louder. After all was quiet for
about 10 minutes, I replayed a few seconds of the tape. Within minutes both
birds flew into trees on opposite sides of the trail. I was able to get
photos of each one but not the two together. Eventually, they both flew off
to the west and were not seen again - but what a treat.
