After starting our day with a NORTHERN PARULA just 1/2 mile south of
stateline in OR (coming to a hummer feeder) we with friends Jim and Sue
headed north in search of winter birds. On Sheffler road we found 2 SNOW
BUNTINGS -#261 for our county yearlist - only 1 more species to tie our
A few dozen "arctic" Horned Larks were in with the hundreds along the
road - snow cover always brings them to the road. A Lapland Longspur was
heard but not seen.
On Smith Springs road six Tree Sparrows were in a weedy area with many
Wcrowns, Song Sparrows and juncos.
Mike chummed for gulls at Lower Monumental Dam - all the regulars -
nothing unusual. Above the dam at the gravel pit were over 65
GRAY-CROWNED ROSY-FINCHES -
Rough-legged Hawks were on every road north of 124 - we had 11 birds -
two of them beautiful black morph.
Good birding, M&ML
