I started the weekend with a search for some of the recently reported White-faced Ibis [WFIB]--
This morning at ~7:00, 15 WFIB were at the Millet Pond in Walla Walla County -- they mostly stayed well hidden in the rushes, but did fly up once to give a good chance to count them.
I tried in vain to turn up WFIB in Columbia or Garfield County where they have yet to be recorded. Best birds in a run along the Snake River were in Garfield, on the island a couple miles west of the Lower Granite Dam where an American Avocet & a Blue-winged Teal were keeping the Am.White Pelicans company .

In Asotin County, the mouth of the Alpowa river didn't have any WFIB, but several pelicans were joined by 6 American Avocets.
And then, at Swallows Park in the swimming area, a White-faced Ibis was hanging out with 4 Blue-winged Teal.
