Hello everyone,

Winter has definitely arrived.  It was a very chilly morning but we braved the elements long enough to find a few nice birds on the Island, in the Meadow and lots of ducks in the harbor.  Many thanks to Randy for sending me his e-bird reports as I did not want to take my hands out of my gloves to keep the list!

BIRDERS:         Gary, Karin C., Karin D., Renate, Eric, Randy and Jennie

TIME:               8:00am to approximately 10:00am

Hello to All,

The strong winds made the cold that much more penetrable. With proper layering of clothing, one could endure and watch for birds. We quickened our pace today because of the dearth of birds along the way.

A single bird was seen on Wooded Island – a Dark-eyed Junco.

Seven mature trees were cut down in the area north of Wooded Island.  There is no stopping the utter destruction of what were once Wooded Island and its surrounding area.

The Outer Harbor still holds Buffleheads and Scaup.

Hello to All,

Wooded Island is now open. Access is from the north and south bridges.  Darrow Bridge remains heavily barricaded. We now walk around the Columbia Basin (North Lagoon) to reach the North Bridge onto Wooded Island.  The Japanese Garden had only one entry and exit point, under the cedar gate.

Hello to All,

It was a great day for birding. The sun was shining and the sky was blue.

We walked south through Bobolink Meadow, then along the soccer field fence, which will remain in place. Lauren from the Park District arrived at the South Bridge onto Wooded Island at the same time our group did.  She unlocked the fence and we were free to walk on our beloved Wooded Island once again.
