We took Iain Tomlinson and friend Tom birding today in northern Walla
Walla county. Target species being Long-eared Owl and Slaty-backed Gull.
Success on both.
Received an email from Carol Riddell that the rare gulls were not at the
dam earlier - but they were there at 2:45 pm - LBBG on the cement
abutment - didn't see the Slaty-backed above the dam- but it showed up
below the dam after 10 minutes of looking. Did not see a Glaucous today.
The gull numbers were down today - but we saw hundreds of gulls flying
up and down river at Walker HMU and at Fishook Park, and at the frozen
Walla Walla River delta hundreds more were out on the ice - at least in
the morning when we drove by.
Good gulling, M&ML
