I'm planning to head down to southwestern Washington later this week, and
I want to add to my county lists in Lewis and Cowlitz counties (also
Skamania and Wahkiakum).

In Lewis county, I plan to go out along Big Hanaford Road near what is
called the Centralia Steam Plant, I guess. I'll be mainly looking for ducks
and other water birds. I haven't ever birded that area before, and I
wondered where the access points are that overlook the various ponds. Do you
just look from the main road, or are there other access points?

In Cowlitz county, I plan to bird Woodland Bottoms. I've been there
before, but only briefly and only in the north part of it, birding from my car.
This time I want to spend more time there and visit the southern end, near
the Lewis River. I'd appreciate any info about particular places to look
for passerines there, especially places where I might get out and walk a

I have both editions of A Birder's Guide to Washington, and I've checked
eBird reports extensively, but I'd appreciate specific information on exact
places to go.

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
