Hello Tweets,

Well, the scope of my previous RFI was indeed too large: I got exactly 0 responses. So, let me narrow it down. My question is, where in Eastern Washington would I have the chance of finding Long-billed Curlews and White-throated Swifts during the first week of April? They don't have to be in the same place. I do have one restriction, though: the location has to be within 20 minutes of I-90, for the reason that my birding is not the priority of this trip!

I think that Frenchman Coulee might be a good place for the White-throates Swifts. What are the chances of seeing Lewis's Woodpeckers there? There's one eBird report for that location.

Also, does anyone know what Quincy Wildlife Area is like for birding in late March? I'm camping there overnight. Would I be hearing/seeing Say's Phoebes, Rock and Canyon Wrens, or American Avocets?

Ok, I hope I still haven't asked too many questions! I patiently await answers.

Thanks and good birding, Joshua Glant
