I had a relaxing day at home with my eyes to the sky from my Battle Ground, Clark County today:
Greater-white-fronted Goose - 1350 (all flying high and in a straight line heading south. I was able to scope most of them and all the ones that I saw were Greater white-fronted although I wouldn't rule out the possibility that there were other species (Cackling, maybe a few Snow) mixed in. All geese were in about a 1/3-1/2 mile wide band so I was lucky that they chose to line up over my house!- FOY for county and yard Turkey Vulture - 51 Hairy Woodpecker - 1 (FOY - yard) Common Bushtit - 42 (in one flock!) Golden-crowned Kinglet - 2 (FOY - yard) Swainson's Thrush - 3 (2 nocturnal migrants) Black-throated Gray Warbler - 1 Orange-crowned Warbler - 1 Warbling Vireo - 1 Western Tanager - 1 American Pipit - 2 (FOY - yard)
Hoping for more magic tomorrow.
Keep your eyes and ears skyward.
