Today we ran into George Gerdts who told us about this White-faced Ibis in
Grant County. Location is Gloyd Seeps Wildlife Area. This location is part
of WA bird map Coulee Corridor - location 41. On DeLorme 2007 page 65
square 8-9 C. It's just North of the Grant Co. International Airport.
There's no signage; but look for the pull off and parking lot with kiosk.
It's on the West side of N. Stratford Rd. about 6-ish miles North of hwy 17
(all North of the town of Moses Lake). You park and walk past road gate for
about 15 minutes. You'll arrive where Crabb Creek crosses under the gravel
road in a pipe; you are walking in on. Look to North side of the water and
the Ibis feeds and hides in the tall reeds at water's edge. Spotting scope
required. Please watch out for Killdeer nests (eggs) in the gravel road as
you walk to and fro.
