On Friday, November 16, my brother and I had a nice arctic/alpine bird
experience on Steptoe Butte, Whitman County. We started with two
ROUGH-LEGGED HAWKS at the highway junction. We then saw a NORTHERN SHRIKE
near the 'treeline'. Near the top we had a flock of GRAY-CROWNED
ROSY-FINCHES and a SNOW BUNTING. In the same area was group of three
probable COMMON REDPOLLS that we couldn't get a good look at.
This is always a nice place to visit with outstanding views.
