Re: [BirdYak] Western Sandpiper at Wenas Lake, Rufous Hummers near Wapato
- Hi Denny,
From my records, this is the earliest "fall" report of Western Sandpiper in
Yakima County. Another indication the southbound migration has begun is
arrival of male Rufous Hummingbirds at our feeder in Parker Heights last
evening, also 29 June.
