Subject: [Tweeters] Skamania County Birds Date: Fri Nov 1 13:25:41 PDT 2019 From: Wilson Cady - gorgebirds at juno.com
Yesterday, after a morning of watching birds on our property where the best sightings were a RUFFED GROUSE and a calling NORTHERN PYGMY-OWL we did a little birding along Highway 14 in the Columbia River Gorge between Clark County and Stevenson when we went up to pay are property taxes. It was a warm and sunny day with only a very light breeze, a nice respite after a week of cold east winds. A stop at the Franz Lake NWR overlook produced a small flock of TUNDRA SWANS along the shoreline below the overlook that contained two family groups of TRUMPETER SWANS that were easy to locate by their calls and very obvious size difference. At the now drained pond at Skamania Landing there was a huge mixed flock of AMERICA WIGEON and GREEN-WINGED TEAL that contained one male EURASIAN WIGEON. Wilson Cady
