> Today we birded in the Cle Elum area. There is often a Rough-legged Hawk at the intersection of Red Bridge and Teanaway Roads. It was there again today. It is not at all skittish.

> Also along Red Bridge Road was a feeding covey of 24 California Quail that didn't mind that we stopped directly across the road from them. Here is a video.

> On the way up to Swauk Prairie we watched a Common Raven pursue an American Kestrel. The Raven put in a mighty effort, but finally gave up at which point a Black-billed Magpie took up the pursuit. The two birds went out of view, but our guess is that the Magpie gave up also. Swauk Prairie had a wide variety of raptors.

> We were surprised to see two Snow Geese in with a large flock of Canada Geese along Masterson Road just prior to Red Bridge Road.

> Here is the album of photos for the day.
