[Tweeters] Eastern Kingbird redux at Steigerwald NWR

What seemed a short stay of the Easterrn Kingbird that Russ Koppendrayer
found at Steigerwald NWR two weeks ago has a few more notes. Dan Friesz
found one at the Flushing Channel (Columbia River to Vancouver Lake) on
6/21, probably a different bird. This afternoon at 3:30 Gary Wiles and I
watched a pair using the fence near the fish ladder at Steigerwald Lake
NWR. Whether either is the same bird seen at the same area seems likely,
as is the likelihood that a pair foraging together at the end of June are
likely local breeders. I don't think the pair that was found at Bachelor
Island of Ridgefield NWR on 6/11 by Will Clemons and Carol Ledford has been
seen since, but another survey is planned for tomorrow morning. Eastern
Kingbirds have nested on Bachelor Island or the Carty Unit of Ridgefield
NWR every year since 2011.
