[Tweeters] Question about prairie falcon

I have seen PRFAs in Umtanum Creek Canyon in past years (prior to the
fire), but not on my two hikes there this year. Note that I have hiked only
c. 2-1/2 miles up the canyon, and thus did not get up to the set of
basalt cliffs beyond mile 3. I typically wait until fall, when the creek is
a trickle, before exploring up that high. As you may have discovered, the
trail is overgrown in places past c. 1-1/2 miles upstream.

The fire surely has disrupted things. Some species seem to have flourished,
e.g., there are 4 or 5 pairs of Yellow-breasted Chats this year. In past
years we've IDd only one or two pairs of YBCHs in the area.

Did you see the Eastern Kingbird nest on the suspension bridge?
