Hi Birders,

Spent a few hours in Lincoln County, WA today; highlight was a surprising Spring BAIRD'S SANDPIPER on Old Kuck's Road South of Davenport. Also present were Killdeer, Snipe, and Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs. Davenport Cemetery had lots of Juncos and Ruby-crowned Kinglets singing and of note PACIFIC WREN, VARIED THRUSH, TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE, and NASHVILLE WARBLER.

In Mill Canyon, a few Orange-crowned, Yellow-rumped, and one Nashville Warbler were singing. Most of the usual residents were around with the highlight being an early WESTERN TANAGER. At Reardan Ponds were more Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs, a Black-necked Stilt, and a late ROUGH-LEGGED HAWK, along with all of the usual waterfowl, Sora's, Swallows, etc.

Good birding,
Jon Isacoff, Spokane
