We are experiencing the same type of White-crowned Sparrow movement this morning at the west end of the Columbia River Gorge, 45 miles west of Cathy Flick's location in White Salmon. In our 45 plus years at our place here in Skamania County we have never had more than a couple of pair stop at our feeders each Spring. Other sightings included two new for the year birds with 2 male Evening Grosbeak and a pair of Brown-headed Cowbirds. Wilson Cady
