We had a fallout here on Butyl Creek today. Mostly Yellow-rumped Warblers, who knows how many, maybe 40, plus Warbling Vireos, Orange-crowned Warblers, Wilson's Warblers, a MacGillivray's Warbler, a Black-throated Gray Warbler, a Hermit Thrush, a Red-breasted Nuthatch and a Lincoln's Sparrow. Throw in a distant Red-tailed Hawk for 22 yardbirds.
At one point we had 11 Warblers crowded into the creek at once. 7 are visible in stretch of the creek in the movie. (It's only 12 feet long so there aren't that many stretches.)
We had the camcorder ready this time and I got all the Warblers, but missed most of the others.
The exuberant bathing is set to music from Duane Eddy--Movin and Groovin--(thus the title of the movie) and Richard Freitas, Your Wicked Ways.
Here is the link to the movie: https://youtu.be/RQCRUAOC0t0

One other thing. I have a question. What's going on with Robinson Canyon, (a long east-west canyon west of Ellensburg.) That used to be our go-to spot east of the crest but I see no one has e-birded it in a year and a half. Is there a closure, or are there too many shooters or what?
Thanks in advance, I think others might be interested if anyone knows.
