Greetings All

David Irons, Ryan Merrill, Brad and Ross Waggoner and I had a great day today. A Chestnut-sided Warbler at the s. end of Bassett Park started the day of nicely (many thanks to Ryan for spotting that). We also had 1-2 Lewis's Woodpeckers there, 2 or so American Redstarts, and 3 Olive-sided Flycatchers between 7 and 10 am.

We then went to Lyons Ferry, where we were joined by Charlie Wright, Bruce LaBar, Marcus Roening, Ted Peterson, and Steve Pink. On the causeway between the "mainland" and the "island" we had a Blackpoll Warbler that paused long enough for photos and on the island we had 2 Northern Waterthrushes. Other highlights were a Red eyed Vireo and 2 Least Flycatchers.

Heading back to Washtucna, a group of folks had a tasty Tennessee Warbler staked out for us near the parking area.

Then off to Potholes State Park where we had 83 Sanderlings!!!! plus 3 Sabine's Gulls and 10 Common Terns (plus several Forster's).

Best Wishes
