28 June 2012

The weather forecast was not good so I left the hotel early to go out and salvage the morning by recording some birds. I managed to record 8 males today without really trying. I also found a Red-breasted Sapsucker nest in a swampy area. This area of Washington is at the western base of the Cascades with some spectacular views to the east. It looks like more rain over the next 2 days so I will camp out tonight and see if I can record something on Friday.
