> After breakfast today, we spontaneously decided to go to Kittitas County for sunshine, blue skies and hopefully good birding. We were not disappointed.
> Heading east out of Cle Elum on Airport Road we found a very birdy snag where Airport Road takes a 90 degree right turn. On or near that snag we saw 11 species of birds including 2 Pygmy Nuthatches and 2 Red Crossbills. Turning left onto Masterson Road we immediately encountered 2 Black-billed Magpies, 3 Bald Eagles, 10 Common Ravens and 25 American Crows raising quite a ruckus so we stopped. Soon a Bobcat crossed the road in front of our car. We proceeded to Swauk Prairie where we found a Townsend's Solitaire on Ranch Road. Finally we saw 3 Rock Wrens at Huntzinger Boat Launch.
