Hello Tweeters,

Bill and I spent last week on a quest to find grouse and
owls. We had limited success with the owls, but none whatever with the
grouse. Nonetheless, we visited a number of our favorite places-Conconully,
Sinlahekin Wildlife area, Molson-near Omak and Little Pend Oreille NWR and
the Pend Oreille River around Calispell Lake near Colville. I put our best
pictures into the Flickr album below. In the bird pictures are a series of
three Northern Shovelers that we found at dusk on Cameron Lakes Road. The
two males were first displaying for the one female, then got into serious
bird quarreling. I like the way the shovelers always look like they are
smiling even when they are probably agitated. The bird pictures come first
and then I put in a few photos of the actual places we visited-they are so


Happy birding, Charlotte Byers, Seattle
