Migration continues...

Sandhill cranes at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge bring new birds each week. Recently, I've seen ruby and golden-crowned kinglets, yellow-rumped warblers, tree and violet-green swallows, and Say's phoebes. New waterfowl include canvasbacks and pintails. Although the weather continues to be variable (snowing as I type), the birds continue to move. 

The County Big Year continues, slowly and with some missed opportunities. Species count to date: 95.
