Today the Vancouver Audubon Spring Columbia Gorge field trip was
a rolling traffic jam with eight vehicles that after braving the cold
rain in Clark and Skamania Counties hurried up to Klickitat County in
futile hope of drier conditions. We found a few nice birds including one
OSPREY near Drano Lake in Skamania County for a first for the year county
bird. two ACORN WOODPECKERS were on the granary tree visible from Old
Highway 8 east of Balch Rd. There was a single CASPIAN TERN on the
sandbar at the mouth of the Klickitat River. And on the way home, Barry
Woodruff and I stopped at the mouth of the Wind River in Skamania County
where the SAY'S PHOEBE was still feeding like a Black Phoebe by perching
on sticks in the bay and hawking insects over the open water by the boat
ramp .
