Kay and Fred began Sunday’s scout at parking lot #3 at 8:00 am. Scattered
rain showers and 56 degrees gave way to sunshine and blue skies by 9:30
am. They traveled 4.29 miles during the scouting trip. A Hermit Thrush
was perched on a willow branch giving clear views along the east side of
the county landfill. The bird activity was fair as we observed (saw or
heard) 37 species.
