Tweeters,



In case anyone was wondering about my cryptic reference to Lewis's
Woodpeckers in Whatcom County, 2 of them were reported to be flycatching
near a barn along Truck Road (just off the Mount Baker Highway east of
Deming) by a person called Fanter Lane on September 24 (message to the
Whatcom Birds group). I looked for the birds the next day, as did
Bellingham birders Phil Wegener and Barry Ulman, but we could not find them.
However, there were several raptors in the area including a TURKEY VULTURE,
COOPER'S HAWK, RED-TAILED HAWK, and 2 BALD EAGLES.



If we add these to other recent reports, there have been sightings in the
last week of Lewis's Woodpeckers in Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish, and King
Counties, at least. There were also one or two seen in the Vancouver, BC
area earlier in September.
