*Eurasian Wigeon* *Cinnamon Teal* *Black Phoebe* These all in creek/slough that crosses under Reeder Rd. a bit before the Oak Island turn off. Park and walk back as it is on a bend and narrow. Wigeon were on the left side, Phoebe and teal on the right.
3 *White Pelicans *on Sturgeon Lake at Coon Point.
70 *Tundra Swans *at East Side viewing platform.
*Sandhill Cranes *seen in many places.
*Eagle* numbers seem up (perhaps 25) and it looked like pairing up was happening.
A very large flight of *Snow Geese* was seen from Coon Point, this at the end of my day, not sure where they set down.
Plenty of water finally in close pond at Coon Pt. and E. side viewing platform.
6 *Common Goldeneye* on the Columbia at end of paved (Reeder) road opposite McNary parking area.
Rentenauur Rd. nearly birdless.
Most waterfowl species represented, various locations..
Nice day, chilly but good light much of the time.
Not a hunt day today, about two more weeks of that being a factor-every other day is a hunt day.
