Hey Tweets - If any chase this super warbler in the morning please post as soon as you can - whether your search was successful or not. I'm headed there from Omak in the morning and I know others are coming from Seattle and probably other points. We'd all like to know if the bird is seen - or if it isn't. Since it moved "down creek," maybe it is not on territory and won't hang around - or, just maybe, it will realize how great Wilsonskamania County actually is and stay put!

Tom Mansfield (no Alder Flycatcher but nice Great Gray Owl) in Omak tonight.

When I saw that Dave Hayden and Sherry found a singing male Hooded Warbler while hiking the Cape Horn trail (Upper Trail) in Skamania County, I had to head over there immediately as it is only about three miles from our house.


When I got there I met Dave and Sherry Hayden coming down the trail. I saw the bird at 2:30pm and shortly after that Keith Brady and Bob Morse showed up and we watched it for a while. It sang almost continuously and was fairly easy to spot as it is very active, after about a half an hour it stopped calling and we headed back down to the parking lot. When Keith and I were about a hundred yards from the parking lot we heard it singing in that area near the creek.
