Tweets - I was at Crescent Lake near Momroe when Scott posted so headed east. Thanks Kish for excellent directions to the ball field. It's tiny and no sign of CRCA. Also checked emergency airfield at Skykomish which is larger than ball park. Did see vultures around Sultan so headed west.
Tom Mansfield in Skykomish where the wind is howling!

> For those that are interested in chasing this bird, I did a little digging to get an exact location for the ball fields. The ball field (there is apparently just one) is just east of the town of Skykomish, which is along Highway 2 about fifteen miles west of Steven's Pass and is located in King County. The road to the ball field is south of HWY 2 just west of the bridge over the south fork of the Skykomish River. Coordinates are 47.712513, -121.347600.
