Hey Tweets,

Today Jason Vassallo, Josh Glant, Dalton Spencer and I spent the day
birding Lewis County from Randle all the way down to Centralia and
Chehalis. The weather was fabulous all day, and the birding turned out to
be exceptional! Highlights include:

Lesser Goldfinch - Male feeding on ground with flock of 50 Juncos at Skaggs
Rd in Morton
Anna's Hummingbird - 1 heard in Morton, first time one has shown up in the
past 6 visits
Common Redpoll - 2 birds with flock of 8 Pine Siskin in alder trees off of
Priest Road in Morton
Northern Pygmy-Owl - Single bird came into Jason's tooting at Taidnapam Park
American Dipper - One bird very close at the river near Riffe Lake
Swamp Sparrow - Heard only bird along Pleasant Valley Road. Only called a
few times before going silent.
Northern Shrike - Adult at Centralia Steam Plant
Gulls - Western, Herring, and Iceland (Thayer’s) all in field off Airport
Rd. in Centralia
Canvasback - 16 at Hillburger Pond

It was a fantastic day exploring more of Lewis County in the winter as we
have mostly experienced it in Spring and Summer. We were able to see 77
species on the day with many county lifers to go around for all of us!

Happy Holidays,

Adam Crutcher
