Sorry, Tweets, but until Microsoft has a new fix for the dreaded winmail.dat attachment, I have to use a workaround to get this message past the 25K server limitation for Tweeters messages.

Subject: Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM) Eagles Pride Golf Course monthly bird walk - 2-16-2017


Today was nice -- 49degF to start and mid 50's during with no wind, partly cloudy, spring buds everywhere! Seven of us got to see several species we'd not seen for some time, including COMMON GOLDENEYE, NORTHERN SHOVELER, RED CROSSBILL, and HUTTON'S VIREO. Four of the vireos were vocalizing near Hole #4 (Green Course), and the cut-through down the hill from there, and one near the pond next to Hole #12 (Blue Course). Not a lot of species (33), but we had some nice finds along with the highlights, including six Anna's Hummingbirds, and two California Scrub Jays, the latter which we found last month near Hodge Lake and were found there again.

The JBLM Eagles Pride GC birders meet the third Thursday of each month at 8:00AM. Starting point is Bldg # 1514, Driving Range Tee, Eagles Pride Golf Course, I-5 Exit 116, Mounts Road Exit. Upcoming walks include the following:
