Almost forgot to post about a few highlights of my trip EOM (east of the mts.) last Mon.

I want to go back to check on the Hairy Woodpecker nest and the Pygmy Nuthatch nest that I saw in the making on 2 different bleached snags along the RR Ponds road, near Spring Chinook Wy. that goes across the bridge to the hatchery.

Found lots of occupied raptor nests, all with Red-tailed Hawks in them or standing guard nearby. Many unoccupied ones, too and many I couldn't stop to look because I either had no place to pull over or I was already making a beeline for some place else.

Didn't make it to Yakima Canyon, but hope to this week.

I ended the day on Umptanum Rd. with a Great Horned Owl up on a utility pole down in the farm area.
