It was quite surprising to see sunshine this morning so I took advantage of
it and sat on my Battle Ground, Clark County back deck for a while. Bird
highlights were many and included:

Snow Goose - a single large flock of 400 flew high overhead at 8:15 going
wsw to ene. I'm assuming that these were birds coming from Sauvie Island.
My only other Spring sighting was a flock of 300 flying high and east on
March 6, 2016. (FOY)

Turkey Vulture - 1 (FOY)
Cooper's Hawk - 2 (including one in slow flap flight) (FOY)

California Gull - 19 (FOY) - all heading southeast. I am assuming that
they are cutting off a corner of the Columbia by flying from he Columbia in
the northwest part of Clark County and hooking up with the river again
somewhere near Steigerwald in the Camas/Washougal area.
"Olympic" style Gull - 45
Glaucous-winged Gull - 5

Violet-green Swallow - 4 (FOY)

Lesser Goldfinch - 1 (FOY)
Yellow-rumped Warbler 1 (FOY for me for Washington!!!)
Pine Siskin - 4

Keeping my eyes and ears skyward!
