Sorry about the delay - had to head north to Seattle for second Covid vaccination.

Here's the report ---

Although cool (start: 35degF; end: 40degF), the four of us on our journey around JBLM Eagles Pride GC managed to stay mostly rain-free (a few sprinkles here and there). The only ducks we saw were Bufflehead and Ring-necked Ducks -- no Mallards, etc. Some numbers were elevated, such as PINE SISKINS (166) and, compared with last month, AMERICAN ROBIN (37), the latter of which had quite a few located in more forested areas as opposed to on the grassy areas of the course. DARK-EYED JUNCOS (69), VARIED THRUSH (18), and RED CROSSBILL (12), were a bit elevated in numbers. Expected but missing (besides the Mallards) were Red-tailed Hawk and Golden-crowned Sparrow. Mammals included six black-tailed deer.

The JBLM Eagles Pride GC birders meet the third Thursday of each month at 8:00AM. Starting point is Bldg # 1514, Driving Range Tee, Eagles Pride Golf Course, I-5 Exit 116, Mounts Road Exit. Upcoming walks include the following (2021):

* March18

* April15

* May 20

Anyone is welcome to join us! (Currently, wear a mask and maintain social distancing.)
