Birds around today, not mentioned yesterday included Lewis's Woodpecker Western Kingbird Western Tanager Prob Williamson's Sapsucker Black-throated Gray Warbler
We had 7 male grouse today and spent 2 hours watching until the last bird flew away allowing us to depart to enjoy passerines. This was my third trip out to the area this week. I know there are a few people who missed and still want to go. I prefer to offer a group trip, to lessen the impact of daily visits if people go one by one. So if you want to go, give me a day next week and I will pick one that works for at least most of the 6 or so people who have expressed an interest. And, watch for another article to appear soon in the Bend Bulletin.
