We met some nice folks on our visit today: one from Toronto and one, whose
last name, we believe, is Rife. Mr Rife pointed out the nest and egg being
guarded by a pair of Pied-billed Grebes. He also confirmed our sighting of
a Green Heron that flew by overhead.



We had two of our grandchildren on our walk who we are grooming to be
birders and conservationists. However, they don't quite have the patience
for a long day so we only stayed about an hour just before lunch, but our
time was rewarded with the following:





Pied-billed Grebe


Great Blue Heron


Green Heron


Canada Goose


American Wigeon


Gadwall


Mallard


Cinnamon Teal


Northern Shoveler


Marsh Wren


American Robin


European Starling


Spotted Towhee


Song Sparrow


White-crowned Sparrow


Red-winged Blackbird



Dick Martin

Wenatchee Valley
