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.
