Chilly (37-43degF), overcast, with a bit of a biting breeze at times at the monthly JBLM Eagles Pride GC birdwalk. The eight of us had slim pickings for birds but lots of good discussions as we toured the area. No real standouts for the birds, although the Pacific Wrens were definitely tuning up. With only 25 species, the misses were quite a few, so I won't even go there! Final bird of the day was a nice RED-BREASTED SAPSUCKER, which was our only woodpecker other than the ubiquitous Northern Flickers. The only bird of prey was an adult BALD EAGLE, that only two of us saw prior to the bulk of the group arriving. Other than that, it was a nice day for a walk!

Mammal seen: One bllack-tailed deer; and no other furry critters. As I said, slim pickings.

Wait until next month!!
