Hi Tweets,

Heather and I have been birding the Methow valley the past few days - which received about 1 1/2” of lovely fluffy snow Friday night and turns it into a beautiful white-rimed landscape.

A few winter specialities:
- 12 Common Redpolls - Pearrygin Lake SP. very partial to the large birch at site #83.
- 78 Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch on Frost Road toward the frozen Shaw Lake (Twisp), along with a Townsend’s Solitaire.
- 40 Bohemian Waxwings in Twisp City Park
- 1 stray Cackling Goose trying to hide in the Mallards in the Winthrop STP along with an amazing congregation of 68 Barrow’s Goldeneye with Common’s sprinkled in to keep it interesting.

Good winter birding,
