> This past Saturday we found the Cle Elum Cemetery to be very lively, with birds that is. There was a large flock of Western Bluebirds mixed with Yellow-rumped Warblers plus 2 White-breasted Nuthatches, 2 Northern Flickers and a Red-breasted Sapsucker.

> Later, on our way up to Swauk Prairie we had a close look at a Merlin on a fence.

> Finally on Umptanum Road we encountered a large flock of Mountain Bluebirds. Coming back down off Umptanum Road we saw a beautiful rainbow that compensated for any lack of color in the birds.

> Recently returning from a trip to Grant County we stopped at the Gingko Petrified Forest State Park boat ramp, another Kittitas County spot. It was very birdy including a Rock Wren, a Townsend's Solitaire, 2 Say's Phoebes, a Sharp-shinned Hawk and a meeting of the Kittitas County Chukar Society, that is to say a flock of Chukars vocalizing. We never did see one.
