Hi Tweeters,

I visited Woodland Bottoms, Cowlitz County for the 4th consecutive day this
morning with the hopes of seeing some raptor migration at the north end of
the Bottoms. I was surprised by what I saw although I shouldn't have
been. There's been a smelt run along the Lewis River on the south end of
Woodland which has attracted probably 150+ Bald Eagles. They had to leave
at some point and today may have been the day. From 11:19-1:00, I saw 91
Bald Eagles (30 adult, 58 immature, and 3 unknown) circling up and out of
the Bottoms heading north. It was impressive stuff. Here's the eBird
checklist with viewing coordinates.

There are still about 1000+ gulls in the area including a Glaucous Gull
that Bob Flores reported this afternoon. There was an adult Lesser
Black-backed Gull there yesterday morning:

Keep your eyes and ears skyward for a bunch of eagles heading north!
