Hi all -
I spent some time in Wahkiakum County Thursday morning and all day Friday.
Between showers, a few good birds showed up:

Long-tailed Duck - one Friday at Altoona in large scoter flock

Lesser Yellowlegs - late [and hard to find anytime in this county] - 1 on Thursday at Altoona, with a group of Greater Yellowlegs. Other shorebirds in the area included Long-billed Dowitchers, Black-bellied Plovers and Wilson’s Snipe.

Northern Mockingbird - Thursday - still present on Puget Island at 94 E Birnie Slough.

Swamp Sparrow - at least 2 Friday @ Julia Butler Hanson NWR - one close to the dike trail around half way along the route. Another off the end of the road at the dike break from the Skamakowa entrance.

White-throated Sparrow - one Friday along Steamboat Slough Rd near Skamokawa , west of the Brooks Slough intersection at a pull off by a green shipping container.

Good birding,
