- There are many signs of spring in Yakima:
- My dog and I both picked up ticks yesterday on a
brief walk thru a grassy field.
- As Kerry often reminds us "birds don't read the bird
books." I am here to tell you that "Western Rattlesnakes
don't follow conventional wisdom." While birding at Wenas Lake
on Monday a rattler past within 3 feet of me. When he
finally sensed my presence he shook his ten plus rattles
at me, but was in NO hurry to escape.
