      Location: Toppenish National Wildlife Refuge, Yakima County, Washington

      Made my regular Sunday excursion to the Toppenish Wildlife Refuge
      this morning and found mostly frozen ponds and feezing fog (that made
      driving rather treacherous), not the best conditions for birding. Good
      conditioning for the upcoming Christmas Bird Counts though.

      Had good looks at two Nothern Shrike which along with a female Common
      Goldeneye which were probably the best birds of the day.

      Great Blue Heron
      Canada Goose
      American Wigeon
      Northern Shoveler
      Northern Pintail
