Hi! Diane Schwickerath here. My husband Dean and I have been on tweeters for only a couple of months and have enjoyed the interesting postings. This is our fisrt attempt at sending one.
Teresa had a message awhile back about barred owls. Just wanted to let you know that a well documented sighting took place south of Tumwater on Nov.3, near Jack Davis' home. It perched in a tree for 45 minutes that morning, allowing Jack to get some great photos. Also, on Thanksgiving evening, one of our Grays Harbor Audubon members watched an owl for 2 hours hunting night crawlers in his yard. By his description, we are making an undocumented ID of a barred owl.
As chapter president of Grays Harbor Audubon Society, I have been getting many inquiries about when the "Shorebird Celebration" for 1995 will be. The USFWS has set the dates for organized activities for the last two weekends in April. This will be an especially gratifying celebration because the USFWS has just completed the sale from the Port of Grays Harbor of the remainder of the property to complete the acqusition phase of the refuge.
