Last ECAS Wednesday of the year. We added no new species for the year of
Wednesdays, ending with 259, same as last year. Chime in on places to go
in the next 6 months if you want a hand in the upcoming schedule for
2019, coming out in a couple of days.

Probably the most unexpected bird today was the YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER
along Campbell Ranch, near Elliot in Crook County. We were looking for
Trikes and enjoying several species of raptors when the Yellow-rump flew
up out of the wet ditch and was visible again a bit later on a fence
post, for all to see up close. Nice assortment of raptors today. We went
up Grizzly Mtn (2 or 3 inches of snow) hoping for a Rosy Finch or Snow
Bunting but had only a Townsend's Solitaire up there. Along the road,
as well as on a weedy roadside near Lone Pine, we had sparrow flocks
that seemed to each contain a Spizella Sparrow but we never had second
or confirming looks. Sad, one could have been the "bird of the day"
