The other side of that yay was "Owls Boo!" Jean Haglund and I made a trip over to Hood Canal to search the Hamma Hamma area for owls. We went through River canyons near salt water and had no Western Screech. We went through dense forest with no Barred or Northern Saw-whet. We hit power line cuts with lots of good understory next to the aforementioned dense forest and got no Great Horned. We were eventually at mid elevations with second growth and also missed NOPOS. Even visited a barn that has a resident barn owl and missed that sucker! All on a beautiful starry morning.
But I did get a Cooper's Hawk at the mouth of the Skoke. Yay! 84 for the year in Mason, so my needs list is a little longer than Bob's down in Clark County! Still, if anyone's passing through the county and wants to scout, I'd love it!
Next trip is mid-February.
