Hi Tweets,

Today I led a WOS Field Trip up the Grand Coulee and across the Hartline
Plateau. Birding was generally slow, especially for passerines which was
somewhat surprising considering the time of the year. In spite of the slow
birding, there were several notable observations. A complete list can be
found in the trip report on the WOS website when published.

Soap Lake:

Dunlin - 6
Least Sandpiper - 5
Bonaparte's Gull - 2

Lake Lenore:

Tundra Swan - 26

Alkali Lake:

Great Egret - 1

Sun Lakes State Park:

Peregrine Falcon - 1

Steamboat Rock State Park:

Long-eared Owl - 3+

Northrup Point:

Red-necked Grebe - 1

Grand Coulee Hill Road:

Northern Goshawk - 1

Road 'W' NE:

Prairie Falcon - 1

Coulee City STP:

Dunlin - 4
Long-billed Dowitcher - 2
Bonaparte's Gull - 2

Brook Lake (aka Stratford Lake):

Greater White-fronted Goose - 2
Snow Goose - 29
Cackling Goose - too many to count

All in all it wasn't too bad of a day and I look forward to doing it again
