      We ventured out to the Para Ponds outside Othello last Saturday to hopefully
      get a lifer Tri-colored Blackbird. We didn't see many close enough to ID well,
      but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't make any of the Red-winged into
      Tri-colored. Anyway, here is what we saw, the highlight being 39 CANVASBACKS

      Black-billed Magpie (numerous)
      Horned Lark (3)
