Jay Withgott and I drove to Cascade Locks to look for the reported Marbled Murrelet this afternoon. We looked until late in the day on the Oregon side before crossing into Washington. It was good that we did. From an overlook west of Stevenson (just opposite the entrance road to Skamania Lodge) we found a reasonable view. From high on the bluff we could see the Sternwheeler and Marina slightly to the southwest. We saw one of each:ANCIENT MURRELET (we think both OR and WA)
SURF SCR (male) close to OR shoreline
RED-NECKED GREBE (OR side)Bad digiscoped photos of the murrelet were taken when it floated past us.From Government Cove road we saw a huge raft of coots ?and wigeon on the river that included three Eurasian types, the two males looking like hybrids plus a female. Nearby was a fairly close EARED GREBE.Shawneen Finnegan and
