Location: Yakima County, Washington
My usual Sunday morning trip to the Toppenish Wildlife Refuge, including
Pumphouse Rd., to Mud Lake, back to Lateral "C", to Charlie's Pond, back to
Marion Drain Rd., to Old Goldendale Rd. to Pumphouse Rd. to Hwy 97.
Most impressive sighting was the dozens of Yellow-rumped Warblers that the
storm must have blown in at Lateral "C" and Toppenish Creek. The trees were
crawling with them.
I too have noticed the sudden appearence of Varied Thrush, there were
several at the refuge headquarters today and I saw 6 or 7 at the State Park
on Huntzinger Rd. in Kittitas Co. yesterday. ( Yes, I chased the
Yellow-billed and the Arctic Loon yesterday ;-).
Birds seen (in taxonomic order):
Great Blue Heron
Great Horned Owl
Total number of
species seen: 38
Sunnyside, WA 98944
