The FERRUGINOUS HAWK (or one of its offspring) that has graced the Sprague area the past 2 winters appears to have returned. It is hanging around the farm machinery just East of the WDFW Adams County boat launch. The lake itself is about half frozen though there are still several thousand ducks and geese. Most notable was a RED-BREASTED MERGANSER. The PRAIRE FALCON that has been around is still around. All coots, loons, grebes, cormorants have moved on save for one lonely HORNED GREBE and one even lonelier Coot that were embedded in a flock of Lesser Scaup. A flyover PINE SISKIN provided the passerine of the day.

Good birding,
