Even though I risked being blinded by that very unusual golden orb in the
sky, I headed to the river with Luke Hanes and enjoyed some great birding.
We started at Vancouver Lake where the only notable sighting was 4 TUNDRA
SWANs - the first of the season for me. A stop along the river south of
Frenchman's Bar Park yielded a RED-NECKED GREBE on the Oregon side of the
river and a few notes from a HORNED LARK. Wintler Park yielded a few
HORNED GREBEs a SURF SCOTER which I believe was in Oregon waters and a far

Moving on the Washougal Waterfront Park, we hit the jackpot. We first
found a WHITE-WINGED SCOTER, only the second one I've ever seen in the
county. That sighting was closely followed by a single EARED GREBE and
finally a PACIFIC LOON! All three of these species are code 4 birds in
Clark County.

Keep your eyes and ears skyward (or wherever the birds are).
