Birders stayed after I left and species count will be higher. Light rain or colder weather or what ever, kept bird activity pretty quiet in the morning. We tried the areas expected to be good spots for woodpeckers. We checked a lot of the burned area, but still missed birds heard and seen in areas in past 1 or 2 days. We saw no woodpeckers going to cavities or excavating cavities. I think Tom Lawler and perhaps others ebirded as we went along so thanks.
Birded areas in the 2017 Milli burn, w along 242, Millican Crater rd, Trout Creek swamp WP spot, Scott Pass/1026, and Whispering Pine HC. This report was mailed for Judy Meredith by http://birdnotes.net
