      Yakkers,

      I have been down with an inner ear malfunction that has made me perpetually
      seasick so it's good to be back on steady feet. I took advantage of the nice
      weather and birded the Yakima Reservation for a few hours today, mostly
      along Pumphouse Rd. to Island Rd. and Marion Dr. Rd. to Old Goldendale Rd.

      The highlight of the day was the 52 TUNDRA SWANS on the Zimmerman property
      at Lateral "A" Rd. and Marion Dr. Rd. Also lots of CANADA GEESE seem to be
      staging for the move north. Saw 3 BALD EAGLES (2 - Adults and 1 - Juv.) in
      a pasture along Marion Dr. Rd. must be calving time.
