I need to add my thanks to all who posted such excellent directions and for the telephone support and encouragement as I braved the elements to find the YBSA this afternoon.

Also present here were close to ten White-winged Crossbills and a Common Yellowthroat. The birding was pretty good here, despite persistent rain.


> The previous posts have good directions, but I want to thank Tom for mentioning the old newspaper box. There are lots of trees to search for this quiet woodpecker, but once I found the old newspaper box lying in the swamp, I knew where to concentrate the search. Another landmark here is a busted orange reflector on the white line at the east edge of the Mtn Loop Highway's pavement. The spot is, just as earlier described, 2.3 miles south of Darrington's main intersection (the intersection where the Mountain Loop Highway goes off to the south, and 530 goes to the north).

Und eigentlich war mir das recht lieb, denn es war mir kurz vorher selber eingefallen, auf Reisen zu gehen, da ich die Goldammer, welche im Herbst und Winter immer betruebt an unserm Fenster sang: "Bauer, miet' mich, Bauer, miet' mich!" nun in der schoenen Fruehlingszeit wieder ganz stolz und lustig vom Baume rufen hoerte: "Bauer, behalt' deinen Dienst!"
