Tweeters and OBOL,

It was an interesting night at my Battle Ground, Clark County, WA yard in
the wee hours of this morning:

Swainson's Thrushes were moving from about 1:15-3:15 and probably longer
but I fell asleep as it was going on. A single Savannah Sparrow flew over
during this time. My highly anticipated Western Screech Owl started
calling at about 1:30 - the first I've heard this year. In addition, a
single Barn Owl called twice while the local pack of coyotes conversed in
the background.

At about 8:00 this morning, there was a young Red-eyed Vireo in with a
flock of 4 Warbling Vireos and 2 Wilson's Warblers. Yesterday's Least
Flycatcher was replaced with several Willow Flycatchers - probably the
local breeders which have been terrorizing everything in the yard from
House Finches to BC Chickadees to American Goldfinches to Bewick's Wrens.
Quite fascinating to watch all the activity!

Keep your eyes and ears skyward.

Jim
